Emergency pro se motion

by Lena
(Florida)

My husband just left me and our child without any means of support. How can I file an emergency motion for support? How long does it take to get an active order for support?

Motion for Temporary Relief
by: FALDP Staff

Hi Lena,
If a petition for dissolution has been filed, either by you or your husband, you can file what's called a Motion for Temporary Relief to request child support while the divorce is pending. Look for FORM 12.947(a), on the Florida Supreme Court's site - www.flcourts.org .

If neither of you has filed a petition for dissolution of marriage, and you are not contemplating divorce, you can file a Petition for Support Unconnected with Dissolution. If that is your situation, Look for FORM 12.904(b), also on the Florida Supreme Court's site - www.flcourts.org .

Instructions for both forms are on the Supreme Court's site. This is not meant to be legal advice. and is what should be common knowledge.
