Kings County Spousal Support Attorney | Alimony
The income levels between two partners in a marriage are not always equal. Perhaps one spouse stayed at home and raised children or was unemployed for a period of time. During a divorce or legal separation, it can be difficult to adjust to a sudden income reduction. Temporary or permanent alimony might be available to help ease this transition for you.
What is Alimony and how is it determined?
Alimony is sometimes referred to as spousal support or spousal maintenance. It is calculated by looking at a variety of factors including the length of the marriage, the current income of both spouses, and the earning potential of both spouses. California offers both temporary and permanent alimony options. Temporary alimony is generally awarded before a divorce is finalized. Permanent alimony is usually dealt with at the time of a divorce. Modifications can occur in special circumstances, such as after a remarriage or job loss.
Casey D. Martin can help with temporary and permanent alimony cases, as well as with modifications and enforcement actions.
