Spousal Support (Alimony)

Spousal Support (Alimony)
Protecting Your Interests in Spousal Support Cases

In some divorces, spousal support, traditionally known as alimony, is ordered by a court. In these cases, one spouse is ordered to provide a specified amount of financial support to the other spouse for a specified period of time, or, in some cases, on a permanent basis. Sometimes spouses can reach agreements outside of court through mediation or negotiation.

How Is Spousal Support Determined?

In California, spousal support is determined based on several factors, including:

  • The length of the marriage
  • Both parties' incomes and assets
  • Both parties' education, work experience and potential for increased income
  • Age, health issues and the ability to work

Discussions of spousal support often concern issues of fairness and equitable treatment. If you are anticipating or dealing with spousal support questions, it is important to consult a lawyer with real experience.

I am always so impressed with how honest and forthright Albert and Stefanie are. I was also amazed that when they told me that they were going to file paperwork, it was done that day - within the hour, actually. I have never experienced such expedient service. They do what they say they are going to do and provide excellent legal counsel. I recommend them highly Spring G.
