Do You Understand Alimony?

In California, many of us are familiar with the idea of alimony. After all, we are the land of high-profile divorces. But few people actually understand how courts determine spousal support and why certain agreements may benefit them.

The best thing you can do for yourself and your loved ones during a divorce is make sure you have an attorney on your side who understands the legal process and how California courts determine alimony payments.

You deserve an attorney who will prioritize what you care about. Call The Law Offices of Keith F. Simpson at 310-956-4307 for a lawyer who wants to help you maintain your way of life.

Several Factors Determine Alimony Payments

Your alimony payment depends on a number of different factors. The court considers your marriage holistically to determine what your payment will be. This means your payment will change based upon issues like:

  • The length of your marriage
  • Both parties' ability to work
  • Your standard of living when married
  • Both parties' age and health
  • Marital property and debt

Our practice is more than 15 years old. We know that your emotions are high and that you worry about your ability to live the way you are used to. Let our team help.

For married couples with a business or those who are going through high net worth divorce, there may be additional considerations they have to account for. Our experience can help set you up right for your future.
