Pasadena Spousal Support Attorney

Filing for Divorce? Make Sure You Have the Support You Deserve.

In the state of California, spousal support is either agreed upon through divorce mediation or collaboration, or it is decided by a judge after divorce litigation. Anyone facing divorce in the Pasadena area should hire a Pasadena divorce lawyer that has the courtroom experience and understanding of family law to obtain the support order they need. Maximum spousal support will only be awarded to you if your attorney can argue your case skillfully before the judge and prove that you will be unable to maintain the same quality of life after your divorce that you had when you were married due to reduced income or lack of education. Spousal support could help you finish school, if applicable, and provide the support you need until you are able to support yourself.

Calculating Spousal Support in California

There is no specific formula to calculate the amount of spousal support an individual will receive. If an amount cannot be agreed upon between the two parties in divorce, a judge will take into consideration the employment status of each party, their individual disposable incomes, their contribution to building the home and family during marriage, the length of the marriage before dissolution, and much more. Having a persuasive and relentless Pasadena family law attorney by your side greatly increases your chances of a favorable result, so call the Law Offices of Donald P. Schweitzer today.
