Spousal Support: What's Fair And What's Legal?

Sometimes referred to as alimony, spousal support is a huge issue in many California divorces. Many people are surprised to learn that "temporary" spousal support can begin almost immediately, and that it can represent a substantial portion of the higher-earning spouse's income. Not only that, but the amount of "temporary" support paid cannot be considered when a judge is setting "permanent" or post-judgment support.

Whether you are seeking support or being asked to pay it, there is a lot at stake, and it is important to have strong representation from a skilled family law attorney who will present the strongest possible argument to support your position.
