When minor children are involved in the divorce process a few additional matters are presented besides the termination of the marriage. In the divorce procedure financial information is exchanged between the parties and a determination can thereafter be made as to a child support amount when the custody and visitation is agreed upon or ordered by the court.
A motion for temporary orders can also create an order for the temporary custody and support for minor children including a consideration of alimony during the interim of obtaining a final divorce order. This motion is usually brought before the court within three months of the filing of the client’s divorce petition and is sometimes an effective order to establish precedent for the final divorce decree.
