Filing for Temporary Alimony
A divorce can be an incredibly emotional time for you and your family, and may also create financial strains that can be difficult to navigate during divorce proceedings. Marriage often causes individuals to compromise on their career goals, causing a loss of individual income. For instance, some choose to quit their jobs and stay home to raise their children. Consequently, going through a divorce may raise concerns about how you will continue to support yourself and your family.
Even though divorce proceedings can last a number of years before a fair, permanent alimony agreement is reached, individuals can file for temporary alimony to ensure that they will be supported during this time.
Reasons to File for Temporary Alimony
Temporary alimony is a form of spousal support awarded while divorce proceedings are still pending. In the event of a divorce, you should consider filing for temporary alimony if:
- You are worried about making ends meet during divorce proceedings
- You gave up a portion or all of your assets for the marriage
- You and your spouse are struggling to come to a fair agreement
- No permanent alimony has been agreed upon
