Alimony

Alimony and Spousal Support – Los Angeles Family Attorney

Alimony, also called spousal support or spousal maintenance, is money paid by one ex-spouse or domestic partner to the other after a marriage is dissolved. In the aftermath of a divorce, one household becomes two, and finances that may have been teetering before are often strained to the breaking point with the need to support two residences. We are here to help people reach fair and sensible alimony (spousal support) arrangements that reflect the needs of each spouse.

The Courts will take many factors into account when determining an equitable spousal support arrangement.

There are no off-the-shelf, standard calculations, or printed legal solutions where spousal support is concerned. Many factors affect whether alimony is paid and how much said alimony might amount to. These factors include:

  • Length of the marriage or partnership
  • Ability of the receiving spouse to earn an income
  • Education level and work history of the receiving spouse
  • Paying spouse’s ability to pay
  • Terms and enforceability of any prenuptial / premarital agreement
  • Whether either party has remarried
  • If the receiving spouse contributed to paying the paying spouse’s education, training or professional development.
  • The ages and physical health of both spouses
  • The resulting tax consequences to both parties

The skills and experience of your Family Law Attorney can make all the difference in alimony negotiations. We will examine all the facts of your case, discuss your goals and advise you of all your potential options.
