Do you have questions about spousal support? When you’re going through a divorce, reaching a support agreement can be tricky and is often contentious. When already dealing with the pain of a separation, an experienced spousal support lawyer, like Attorney Diane Marmolejo, can help reduce your stress and be your advocate in court. Whether you have questions about paying or receiving spousal support, Marmolejo Law can provide you with the information you need to make legal decisions that are in you and your family’s best interest.

Determining Spousal Support

In California, only a relatively small percentage of divorces result in a spousal support order and determining the amount of spousal support awarded can be a complicated process. At Marmolejo Law, we have extensive knowledge of California family codes and have handled numerous spousal support cases. We will help prepare you, ensuring that all documents and materials are collected, and be your fiercest advocate throughout the entire process.

When determining spousal support, courts consider many aspects, including:

  • The length of marriage or partnership
  • The standard of living during the marriage, and each person’s needs related to such
  • The ability of each person to maintain that standard of living
  • The needs of any children or dependents, and the impact those needs have on each individual’s ability to work
  • Individual and joint debt and/or property
  • The income capacity of both people, and whether or not one person’s career was affected by situations such as unemployment or the need to take care of children or the home
  • The health and age of each person

Marmolejo Law Has Answers to Your Questions

When the issue of spousal support arises, people often have many questions. For example: What if I make less money than my spouse? How long do I have to pay spousal support? What happens if I or my ex-spouse get remarried? Do we have to do this through the courts?

We firmly believe in protecting the rights of our clients and are committed to ensuring that you are aware of all your options so that you can make legal decisions with confidence.
