During the divorce process, questions about spousal support (commonly known as alimony) come to the forefront. Whether it’s temporary or permanent, spousal support can both help and hinder, depending on the person and the circumstances.
Concerns about paying or receiving spousal support are common, and represent a large source of anxiety for those considering a divorce. As a Certified Family Law Specialist, Ms. Goodrow has helped individuals in Orange County through these situations for decades. We’ll help you consider all the factors and work to place you in a beneficial, long-term situation.
Working To Create Equitable Agreements
The amount of spousal support in California is based on a wide range of factors, including:
- The length of your marriage
- You and your spouse’s respective occupations
- Whether or not you were out of the workforce during your marriage
- Your standard of living during the marriage and the expected standard after a divorce
Whatever the situation, we begin by collecting all the necessary documentation and paperwork, dating back as far as necessary. In spousal support situations, we rely on facts, and use them to help you reach an equitable settlement.
Perhaps you’ve had to be a stay-at-home mom during your marriage. Or perhaps you believe that your situation doesn’t merit spousal support. We can find the solutions you need to make sure that you are being treated fairly during the divorce process.
