How to Get a Divorce If You Can Not Support Yourself Financially

There are many variables and things to be considered. For one thing, obtaining a temporary spousal support order would be the first step. However, this would also depend on how long you two have been married. If it is three years or under, a court is not likely to award temporary support. If this is the case, you would want to start seeking full time employment, and making a plan of self support. Next, would be residence.

Again, if it was a short marriage, it may be difficult to be awarded the home until the final divorce order.

However, there are many variables and conditions which you may receive these temporary orders. The best thing for you to do, is to seek a family law attorney and schedule a consultation. This way, you will be better able to provide all of the details. An experienced lawyer may discover a certain detail that could mean all the difference.
