What is a Motion?

A motion is an application you file with the Family Court to seek a specific form of relief. There are many different types of relief you can seek in a motion. Some examples of relief requested in motions are payment of expenses or temporary support pending a divorce; custody of children pending a divorce; an increase or decrease in alimony or child support; reimbursement for expenses paid for children; and modification of custody or parenting time.
