After a divorce complaint is filed, a motion for temporary orders can be scheduled that could include temporary child support. Scheduling such an order usually takes about one month. It can take several weeks after the hearing to have an order prepared and signed by the court. The order of temporary support can include income withholding where the state collects the child support directly from the employer. It can take more time for the state offices to implement income withholding.

Normally I attempt to file a ex parte order calling for during the pendency of the divorce with the complaint. It goes into effect immediately and takes approximately 2 to 3 weeks administrator delete to work its way through the court in friend of the court before an income withholding order is in effect. However, the payer of the support is normally ordered to make the payments directly to the other party until the income withholding commences.

Typically the Court Order that grants you your divorce will specify when the ex-spouse is obligated to start paying child support. However, most litigants seek a temporary order so that the other party becomes obligated to start paying child support during the pendency of the divorce proceedings, meaning that the child support obligation begins before the divorce becomes final.

Question: How long does it take to receive child support after filing for divorce? There is no set time - a hearing to determine whether child support is apporporiate and, if so, how much is supposed to be paid is - in theory - to be calendared in front of a judge within 45 days of filing - but this doesn't always happen.
