Spousal Support Attorney in Modesto, California

The court may temporarily order the payment of spousal support during divorce proceedings, thereby allowing the recipient to continue to meet his or her financial needs pending the entry of a final divorce degree. Prior to making a final decision regarding spousal support, the court will thoroughly review numerous pertinent factors that will ultimately impact whether or not alimony is awarded either permanently or for a set time period.

These factors include but are not necessarily limited to the following: Modesto Spousal Support Lawyer Mina Ramirez

  • Ability to Pay
  • The Supported Individual’s Overall Employability
  • Each Spouse’s Health
  • Each Spouse’s Age
  • How long the Marriage Lasted
  • Financial Contributions to the Other’s Education
  • Education Level of Each Spouse
  • Their Shared Standard of Living
  • The Earning Capacity of Each Spouse

Based on the leeway that judges have when determining if spousal support should be awarded, retaining an attorney who is familiar with these factors is critical. Modesto Spousal Support Lawyer Mina Ramirez has successfully represented numerous clients in spousal support matters throughout the course of her career.

Either party may request a modification of spousal support based on changed circumstances, such as:

  • Either Party Being Diagnosed with a Severe Illness
  • An Increase in Pay for Either Party
  • A Decrease in Pay for Either Party
  • Loss of Work
  • Retiring

Spousal support is not intended to provide the supported party a higher standard of living than that experienced during the course of the marriage.
