Temporary financial relief can be heard within 45 days of the service of initial pleadings, or within any extension of the time for complying with mandatory disclosure granted by the court or agreed to by the parties. The parties are required to produce the following documents:
-A financial affidavit. This requirement cannot be waived; and the affidavit must also be filed with the court.
-All federal and state income tax returns, gift tax returns, and intangible personal property tax returns for the past year. A party may file a transcript of the tax return in lieu of the individual federal income tax return for purposes of a temporary hearing.
-IRS forms W-2, 1099, and K-1 for the past year, if the income tax return for that year has not yet been prepared.
-Pay stubs or other evidence of earned income for the 3 months prior to service of the financial affidavit.
