Irvine Spousal Support Attorneys

Understanding Alimony & Spousal Support in Orange County

Spousal support, also referred to as alimony, is one of the main issues to address in a divorce. This is an amount of money paid by one spouse to another after the end of a marriage. It is typically paid each month for a certain amount of time, depending on the length of the marriage and other factors.

Because spousal support can have such a tremendous impact on your financial situation, it is important to work with a legal professional who can protect your interests, whether you are taking a collaborative approach to divorce or must go to court to have your disagreements resolved.

An experienced Irvine divorce lawyer can offer skilled counsel regarding:

  • Whether you may be entitled to receive or required to pay spousal support;
  • How to calculate spousal support;
  • How long spousal support will last;
  • What impact receiving or paying spousal support may have on taxes;
  • Negotiating for a fair spousal support amount; and
  • Litigating in court to pursue a court order in your favor.
