Protecting Your Financial Interests In Spousal Support Matters

After a divorce, one household becomes two and there is often significant disparity in the earning power of each spouse. For this reason, it is often appropriate for one spouse to pay the other support payments, on a short- or long-term basis, depending upon the facts of the particular case.

If you have been served with a divorce petition or are thinking about filing for divorce in Southern California, the attorneys at Macksoud Macksoud & Davis, LLP can protect your financial interests in spousal support matters and other divorce issues. Based in Torrance, California, our firm represents clients in Los Angeles County, Orange County and areas throughout Southern California. Our attorneys are experienced negotiators and trial lawyers who are passionately protective of a client’s rights.

How Is Spousal Support Determined?

Factors that influence spousal support in California include:

  • The length of the marriage
  • The age and health of each party
  • The earning power of each party
  • Contributions one spouse made to the education, training and career position of the other during the marriage
  • The standard of living established during the marriage

Because judicial officers have broad discretion in deciding whether to award spousal support (“alimony”), the award or denial of a spousal support claim is frequently based on the facts and circumstances of a particular case. Thus, it is critical for anyone involved in a California divorce to retain experienced legal counsel to present the facts effectively.
