we had a court order for support , but the judge said said ammened the pendente lite . So I did and wrote the Motion have a court date coming up ? Until then Do I owe the money back even thou it was dismissed ?
You will owe what was ordered until the date filed on the motion. The judge will make a new decision from the filed dated forward. I do not understand what was dismissed.
Please be advised my answers to questions does not constitute legal advise and you should not rely on it, due to the fact that we have never met, I have not been aprised of the facts in you case nor have I reviewed any documents.
You should take a look at the two court orders side by side. Did the amended order change the payment terms from the first order? You will owe the pendente lite support from the effective date, which should be set in the court order, it may be the same date as the order or it may be the date the application was filed. You did not indicate the subject of the pending motion, this may or may not affect the pendente lite support payments, again when the motion is heard, the Judge will enter an order, if the new order changes the terms of the prior orders, the new order will trump the prior orders, if it does not change the terms of the prior orders, they will remain in effect.
