Spousal Support / Alimony Caring & Effective Legal Advocacy

San Diego Spousal Support Lawyer

Overview of California Spousal Support Laws

When there is a significant discrepancy in the earning capacity of each partner during a divorce, it may become necessary for one person to provide spousal support to the other. Also known as alimony, spousal support is a way for the partner who makes less to maintain the same quality of life that they enjoyed before the divorce. Negotiating and determining spousal support can be a cumbersome process, and even in the most amicable of circumstances it may be necessary to consult a lawyer.

In cases where one spouse worked for the duration of the marriage while the other spouse took care of the home and children, the working spouse may be ordered to provide alimony to the non-working spouse. Likewise, if one partner makes significantly more money at their job then the other, they may be directed to pay spousal support to the other spouse. Ultimately a judge will decide if spousal support or alimony is necessary, and once ordered these directions must be followed. A divorce attorney from our team can help you in either case by protecting your rights and advocating for your interests.
