In my Florida divorce case, what happens in a temporary hearing?

The purpose of a temporary hearing is to obtain an order to maintain the status quo as it had been achieved during the marriage until the time that the final decree is entered. That can pertain to parenting time as well as support, child support, and alimony. The court will here evidence from both parties, review financial affidavits, and hopefully enter into an order where there will be sufficient support, paid or received, as well as a parenting plan that ensures the continuity of the relationship between the children and the parents while they're working out the final issues.
