Recently, it was reported that Lisa Hochstein of The Real Housewives of Miami was unable to buy food and diapers for her children after her husband, Lenny Hochstein, cut her off financially.
According to Page Six, a digital celebrity news outlet, Lisa and Lenny are in the middle of a contentious divorce. Since he filed for divorce, Lenny has reportedly cut off Lisa’s American Express card, failed to put money in her account as usual for months, and taken her car away.
It is speculated that this is part of Lenny’s strategy to strengthen his position in divorce negotiations. In response, Lisa has filed a motion for temporary relief.
What Is a Motion for Temporary Relief?
In Florida, a motion for temporary relief is a way to secure short-term financial help if your spouse is financially cutting you off. A motion for temporary relief can also be filed if your spouse is denying you time with your kids or preventing you from accessing marital assets, such as a vehicle or home. The following are issues that a motion for temporary relief can help you with in Florida:
- Spousal support
- Child support
- Use of an asset
- Child custody/visitation
- Use of home
- Attorney fees
