Children will unavoidably be affected by divorce of their parents, but at least they are entitled to reasonable child support. The spouse who is given physical custody of the child will usually be entitled to some “child support payments” from the other spouse
Can I get child support during the divorce proceeding?
Yes, like spousal support, child support ordered during the divorce proceeding is called “pendente lite” support, which means “during the litigation”. The amount of pendente lite support may be modified upward or downward in the final decree of divorce.
Yes, if the judge awards you sole or joint physical custody of the child. If you have questions about child support during the divorce, consult with a family law attorney in your area.
