Obtaining Temporary Relief During Divorce

When a couple decides to divorce, it often becomes apparent that one party is more financially independent than the other. Fortunately, the Florida legal system provides options for people who are facing financial peril during a divorce.

At the Law Office of Kelley A. Joseph, P.A., we have more than 20 years of experience guiding Fort Lauderdale clients through the divorce process. We understand the challenges a divorcing couple can face, and we will provide legal advice and guidance every step of the way.

Temporary Relief Options

When the financial strain gets to be too much, many people will turn to their attorneys to learn what can be done through the legal system. Based on need and the specific factors impacting your situation, there are various types of temporary relief available, including:

  • Spousal support
  • Child support
  • Exclusive use and possession of the family home
  • Temporary use of an asset, including a shared car
  • Temporary responsibility for debts

Additionally, it might be necessary to also adjust a time-sharing schedule. Divorce can be hard on the children, and parents should make every attempt to ensure that the children can spend quality time with them both during the pressure-filled divorce process.

Each party of the divorcing couple might seek to get the upper hand in the process through financial or parenting-time means. Florida judges will likely see through these tactics and ensure the proceedings move forward in a fair manner.
