What Is a Temporary Order?

During the divorce process, the court may find it necessary to issue various temporary orders. Temporary orders determine how certain matters, such as alimony, property division, and child custody and support, should be handled while the divorce is ongoing.

How Do I Get a Temporary Alimony Order?

During your divorce case, the court will hold various temporary order hearings.

At such a hearing, you can request temporary alimony. In concurrence with the Florida 2021 alimony statutes, temporary alimony usually takes the form of "bridge-the-gap" alimony.

Bridge-the-gap alimony arrangements usually have a defined end date. Alternatively, if the court determines that a party may need alimony to maintain financial stability for a limited period of time post-marriage, it may award a party with durational alimony.

During alimony hearings, the court takes the following factors into account:

  • The duration of the marriage;
  • The mental and physical health of both parties;
  • The standard of living established during the marriage;
  • The current financial status of both parties;
  • How each party contributed to the marriage;
  • The education and training of each party, and how difficult it may be for the party requesting alimony to achieve financial independence or employment;
  • Each party's tax treatment;
  • Whether either party has minor children and, if so, whether they are involved in the divorce;
  • How a potential alimony arrangement may impact the alimony payor.

If you want to obtain temporary alimony, having a divorce attorney who understands the Florida legal system and will fight for your rights is essential.

At The Virga Law Firm, P.A., our Tallahassee temporary alimony lawyers will help you pursue temporary alimony and fight to obtain the best outcome for you in your divorce.
