Temporary Child Support Payments

Generally when a Wichita couple is separating or getting a divorce, a permanent child support order will be put in place.  This order can be modified at any time, according to the needs of the child or the extenuating circumstances of the paying parent.

However, there are some family law cases where temporary child support payments can be ordered for.  These situations include:

In these scenarios, a judge may order that a temporary amount of child support be paid, or an already existing order be temporarily modified.

Child support is meant to provide a financial means to providing for the needs of a child. If you need help in estimating child support, petitioning the court for child support, or establishing an order as a part of a divorce proceeding, contact the Wichita family lawyer to discuss your case.
