Separate Support

An action for separate support is a mechanism by which one party can get financial support from the other spouse and have the court make determinations as to temporary custody without seeking a divorce. The court’s power is more limited under an action for separate support so careful consideration should be given as to whether this action is appropriate for your circumstances.
