I am divorcing. The court ordered my husband to pay temporary child support and temporary spousal support. The support amounts are modest $173 in spousal and $137 in child support. I am a teacher in a private school and make $30,000 without benefits. My spouse makes $63,000. Does Family Code Section 4323 apply to my temporary support order or only to support paid after a divorce judment? My daughter and I recently (this month) moved in with my boyfriend. Apparently Family Code 4323 states that the fact of my cohabitation creates a rebuttable presumption that influences the "burden of proof" regarding a decreased need for spousal support since the supported party is cohabiting with a person of the opposite sex.
