In California, spousal support (or alimony) may be provided to either spouse as part of a divorce or dissolution of marriage. The law governing spousal support is very complex and the amount paid depends on the facts of each case. If two people can reach an agreement on alimony, the Court will enforce this agreement regardless of the amount of spousal support the Court would have ordered. However, if an agreement cannot be reached, then parties seeking a divorce will have to litigate spousal support. Given that the law regarding spousal support is subjective, whether you are seeking alimony or your spouse has requested that you pay spousal support, people are best served by having experienced counsel. We provide the experience, knowledge, and guidance to ensure that support obligations are fair and appropriate.
