Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. The interim order is the temporary court order you may get soon after you file your motion. In this order, the court tries to take care of your children's needs until your motion is finally resolved. In this case, he had 20 days to comply, failed to do so, so now the Judge imposed the order as final and it has legal effect to be enforced. The State can now go to his employer and garnish his wages, to try and collect what he owes in support.
