Spousal Support

California Central Valley Spousal Support Guidelines Attorney

If you are a party to a divorce, you may be uncertain whether spousal support/alimony will be granted and, if so, how much the support payments will be. Can support be limited to a specific period to allow the receiving party to complete training and take a job? Can you automatically request a reduction in spousal support payments if your ex gets a raise or takes a higher paying job? You want an experienced lawyer to answer your questions, and to stand by your side during the divorce process, so that your interests are protected.

At the Law Offices of Jennifer E. O'Brien, family law is all we have ever done. We take a team approach, working with you and with our staff to identify all your legal issues, as well as the different ways they can be resolved. We strive to provide first-class service at reasonable rates. We have considerable trial experience and know how to minimize your risk in the courts. We will also help you seek solutions through negotiation or mediation.

Our Spousal Support Practice

We advise clients on all matters related to or arising out of disputes over spousal support. We will help you determine whether you are eligible for support payments based on the different factors applied by the courts, including:

  • Length of your marriage
  • Earning capacity of each party
  • The age and health of both parties
  • The standard of living to which you were accustomed during the marriage
  • Any history of domestic violence

If we determine that spousal support (formerly known as "alimony") is warranted, we will then help you establish how much should be paid and for how long. We are well-versed in the spousal support guidelines, and we can help you with spousal support calculations.
