Pendente Lite Child Support
Pendente lite hearings are held in court to determine temporary child support and/or custody. In both cases, an award of pendente lite child support or custody is not used to determine the final child support or custody arrangements.
Note that the support amount can be retroactively applied so that it accrues from the date of filing for divorce. Contact an experienced Maryland child support lawyer for more information or if you are seeking a temporary child support order.
