Temporary Relief

“Pendente lite” is Latin for “pending the litigation.” There are things you may need for the court to do pending the final trial. The court, upon request, can set a hearing to determine the needs and the abilities of the parties and children and order support accordingly. This award is subject to rehearing at the final trial. The court can also order parenting of specific visitation pending the final trial.

To prepare for this you must fill out the form in the Expense and Income Appendix.
