Get Help From a Bay Area Spousal Support Attorney

Divorce is not just an emotionally difficult process; it can also prove to be a financial challenge. If you earn less than your ex-spouse, you may find yourself struggling to afford basic needs, especially while the divorce is ongoing.

Additionally, you may find it hard to get back up on your feet after the divorce. For one, it is not that easy to re-enter the workforce. Second, your time and energy will most likely be spent on your kids since divorce is also a huge adjustment for them. If you find yourself in such a difficult situation, you may be eligible for spousal support.

Also known as alimony, spousal support consists of periodic payments that will help the lesser-earning or non-earning spouse maintain a reasonable standard of living during the divorce. This can even be granted alongside child support.

Contact Anthoor Law Group today and consult with our experienced Bay Area spousal support attorney to learn what your next step should be.

What We Can Do

Our Bay Area spousal support attorney can also handle different matters of family law, such as:

  • Contested and Uncontested Divorce
  • Child Support
  • Visitation Rights

Who Is Entitled to Spousal Support?

Spousal support, or alimony, is typically granted to the spouse who earns less or has no income during the marriage. In some cases, the spouse who contributed to the education and career of the other, or the one who quit their job to take care of the children and prioritize domestic duties may also be entitled to spousal support.

The amount of spousal support will vary. Our Bay Area spousal support attorney understands that each divorce comes with unique circumstances that can affect the range and duration of the spousal support order. Such factors include the duration of the marriage, health conditions, financial capacity of the paying party, and, in some cases, violence and domestic abuse. Our spousal support attorney can help determine what is best for your situation. Contact the team today to schedule a consultation.

How a Bay Area Spousal Support Attorney Can Help

Our Bay Area spousal support attorney will review the unique circumstances of your case and work to ensure you will get the support you need. This is because, in California, spousal support may be temporary or permanent.

Temporary spousal support is more common. This is usually issued when the other party needs to cover basic living expenses during the divorce.

Lastly, permanent spousal support can be granted to a party if he or she is too old to work or if a severe health condition or disability prevents them from being employed. Book a consultation with our Bay Area spousal support attorney to learn more.

Spousal Support Can Be Granted Regardless of Gender

Spousal support is usually associated with women who, during the marriage, chose to be stay-at-home moms to take care of domestic duties. However, spousal support can also be granted to men who went through the same circumstances.

When it comes to spousal support, the law does not distinguish. Whether you are the ex-wife or ex-husband, you can be entitled to spousal support if you earn less than your partner and if your current financial standing cannot cover basic living expenses during or after the divorce.

What to Do If Your Ex-Spouse Stops Paying Alimony?

Spousal support is one of the most bitterly contested aspects of divorce. Most parties would have no problems when it comes to paying child support but will try to contest spousal support all the way to the court. And even if a spousal support order is issued, some would still defy it.

If your ex-spouse refuses or stops paying alimony, you may file for contempt of court. Contact Anthoor Law Group today and schedule a consultation with our Bay Area spousal support attorney to learn how you can proceed.
