TEMPORARY SPOUSAL SUPPORT VS. FINAL SPOUSAL SUPPORT
Temporary Spousal Support and Permanent Final Spousal Support differ fundamentally in nature and function. The manifest purposes of Temporary Spousal Support are to enable that spouse to live in the accustomed manner pending the disposition of the divorce and to provide that spouse with whatever is needed for that spouse to litigate properly his or her side of the controversy.
