Temporary Support in Olympia

Our Olympia Temporary Support Attorneys Can Help Get You Relief When You Need It Most

Every Olympia divorce presents its own unique set of challenges, but often the greatest hardships are created when the process drags on for many months. This can cause a tremendous financial or lifestyle burden that demands some sort of temporary fix. Washington family law provides a way to get help in the form of temporary support from your ex-spouse.

While it might seem pretty simple, temporary support can be awarded in a variety of different ways, and our Olympia divorce attorneys can help you figure out how you can get the most relief. In fact, temporary support can come in the form of child support or child custody depending on the ruling in the Olympia family court. In some family law cases it might be possible to receive alimony (spousal support), but this is less common.

One thing is certain; you will want the help that our experienced Olympia family law lawyers can provide. With over three decades of combined experience, our Olympia divorce attorneys can help you understand how family law applies to your case, and then aggressively fight on your behalf to provide you with relief.

Family law dictates that there are time constraints on how quickly you can get temporary support, so don’t hesitate in contacting one of our Olympia family law lawyers as soon as you can.

How Does the Court Calculate the amount of Temporary Support?

If a divorce or paternity action is pending, an order of temporary support will be decided by the court. How does the court calculate the amount that will be paid during this period of time from the time of filing to the final judgment?

The Washington State Child Support Schedule is used to determine this amount. In fact, these guidelines help determine all child support amounts in family court cases. After a divorce or parentage action is filed with the court, a temporary order may be issued. Other factors pertinent to your individual situations will also be considered.

For this reason, it's vital that you work with an Olympia temporary support lawyer that you implicitly trust. At the Washington Family Law Group, we have more than 50 years of collective experience handling family law situations relative to temporary support.
