Divorce is tough, but we work to make it no more difficult than it needs to be. We believe in protecting your lifestyle and ability to meet financial obligations despite the breakdown of your marriage. Alimony or spousal support laws are designed to protect the spouse who does not earn an equal wage but has otherwise contributed to the marriage.
If your spouse earns significant percentage of your household income, the divorce laws in California offer protection to the spouse who earns less money. Equally, the laws place limits on collection of spousal support by a spouse who does not meaningfully contribute to the marriage. Alimony or spousal support can be awarded by judge to either wife or husband depending on the circumstances that exist.
Whether you are trying to collect spousal support or you are trying to avoid paying an unfair amount, the Irvine family law attorneys at the Gill Law Group, PC are here to protect your interests in your divorce case. We work hard to resolve the issues by either reaching a favorable settlement for our client or seeking maximum possible relief for our client.
Alimony or spousal support are payments made by one spouse who is earning to another who might have lower or no earnings at all. These payments are complex in nature and are calculated based on various factors. The idea is to restore the position of the spouse, who has lower income, to where it was during the course of marriage. At Gill Law Group, PC, we take our time and discuss all possible options and offer insights into how we can help you earn what would be considered reasonable and fair in the eyes of law. We will closely work with you to understand your needs and strategize together to come up with an approach that would be most beneficial to you.
