  Determinations of child support.  Provides that a court shall make a determination of child support on the date it first receives evidence on the matter if the petitioner demonstrates that he (i) has physical custody of the child for whom support is being sought and (ii) has properly served the respondent with the petition where child support is contested. The court shall also enter an order containing such determination on such date. Such order shall be entered as a temporary order without prejudice to a party to the proceeding only if (a) the court makes a written finding that continuation of the matter is proper or (b) the petitioner fails to make a demonstration required by clause (i) or (ii) described above.
