What You Should Know About Temporary Child Support

Are you and your spouse dealing with a separation, which will ultimately lead to a divorce?

This entire process has so many moving parts, and when you have children involved, it makes it seem even more daunting. But, when you utilize the collaborative divorce process, you have a team of experts who are ready to assist each of you while keeping your children’s best needs in mind.

During this process, you and your spouse may work through how a temporary child support plan will be handled until your amicable divorce agreement is finalized.

In a court-litigated divorce, often the court will grant temporary agreements regarding your children. But when this happens, it often delays the court divorce, while making it costly and not very time effective.

Here are some things you can work on in a collaborative divorce to help you and your spouse compile agreements:

  • Communication – utilizing a divorce coach or child specialist can help greatly
  • Each person speaks openly to the team
  • When working together in co-parenting, the process will go much faster
  • Utilizing a neutral financial advisor will help sort out the financial impact of child support

When you are coming to agreements regarding temporary child support agreements in the collaborative or mediation divorce processes, it will not delay your divorce process. The team of experts, including a mental health expert, will help keep the process moving forward and make sure your children’s best interests are at the forefront of the agreement. This is completed in an environment that is conducive to divorcing amicably – more peacefully and respectfully.

When you utilize the Los Angeles Collaborative Family Law Association experts, you can let down your anxiety and stress because you will know that when your divorce is finalized, each person involved, including your children, has had a voice in the final agreement. Call us today!
