    Answered . Temporary support is solely based on income numbers put into the Dissomaster support calculation program or some similar program (there are a few others out there). It is based on the income of each party, tax filing status and some other tax related items such as deductible property taxes and interest, 401K contributions, etc.. This is a very basic statement of what is considered.
