Alimony in California

Alimony PaymentThe purpose of alimony is to alleviate any unfair financial burden that may come upon a non-working or lower-earning spouse after a divorce. Spousal support payments can vary greatly in amount and duration and are determined based on a variety of factors.

When determining an alimony order, the court will consider the:

  • Age and health of the spouses
  • Earning capacity of each spouse
  • Standard of living during the marriage
  • Duration of the marriage
  • Assets and obligations of each party
  • Immediate and specific tax consequences to each party
  • History of any domestic violence

Keep in mind that alimony is not guaranteed for either partner. Alimony awards are finalized by the court.

WHAT DO OUR CLIENTS
HAVE TO SAY?

  • Words can't express how thankful I am to have found this Law Firm.

    “My review is long overdue!

    I met Joy Kraft Miles around July 2019. I had a prior attorney who did not help me one bit and I needed an attorney to represent me for my next hearing that was coming up quickly so I yelped Family Law Attorney's near me and came across this Law Firm.

    While Joy was reviewing the documents submitted in my case, she was very professional yet caring and extremely helpful. I knew instantly I was going to find the light at the end of the tunnel. Not to mention the very reasonable price for the quality of work they provide!

    I ended up being represented by Leyla Zerehi, another Attorney in the Law firm and I'm so thankful for her. She's very knowledgeable, professional and very nice. She truly does what's right and I felt taken care of as far as my wants and needs for a high conflict custody battle and keeping me in the loop of things. I never felt alone, I knew Leyla was taking care of things for me.

    Words can't express how thankful I am to have found this Law Firm. I hope I never need Family Law services again, but if I ever do, I know exactly who to call! I've even recently referred my cousin to Leyla and I would definitely recommend anyone to contact them because they will definitely help you solve your problem.”

    Monica S.

  • This attorney is rare and I can promise you she is a 1 out of 100 type lawyer.

    “After having lost twice, I saw no hope in sight. I just wanted to be around my son more. I came to Kraft Miles with just my courage and she immediately gave me hope. My ex hired an extremely strong attorney. I'd gone through one attorney that sucked and tried to represent myself on the 2nd time around, only to be taken for a ride by my ex's attorney. Ms. Kraft Miles came in and turned it around. She won my case and got me almost a month of extra vacation time a year with my son. She is uber-confident and knowledgeable. Best litigator by far and to make things better she cares about her clients and strives to have you walking away happy. This attorney is rare and I can promise you she is a 1 out of 100 type lawyer.”

    Oscar A.

  • In my view, she performed a miracle in three hours.

    “You have our sincerest thanks, and Ms. Miles, who did the best job, possibly, of any mediator I have ever appeared in front of. When I drove away from my home this morning, I had no hope whatsoever this case would come anywhere close to settling. In my view, she performed a miracle in three hours.”

    Michael

  • To say that Joy Kraft-Miles is an expert is an understatement.

    “Divorce is not an experience that you look forward to. It's also messy and very stressful because of the emotions and people involved. For me, hiring a lawyer was a necessity not because I wanted to penalize my ex, but because I wanted an expert that would help me navigate the cumbersome process. To say that Joy Kraft-Miles is an expert is an understatement. She is a consummate professional with a solid reputation at the Chatsworth Courthouse. Initially, I tried to tackle the process myself by going to the self-help center and filling out the documents on my own. This turned out to be overwhelming. She took my case even though I had a pending DV case. I spoke with four lawyers prior to Joy who would not take my case because of the DV. She whipped through my paperwork in one meeting and told me my case could be brought to resolution with my help. I listened to her advice, asked millions of questions and continuously asked her and her legal secretary Marcos to clarify terms, rulings, and paperwork when I did not understand what was going on. I trusted Joy from the first meeting. I think that is really important; to trust the person that you are working with. She was exceptional to work with under the circumstances. I highly recommend Joy as she has the highest integrity and is very professional.”

  • She is top tier counsel, and worth every minute of her time.

    “Joy has been an outstanding attorney and one of the best in all of CA. She knows the law - a brilliantly sharp ally on your side when you need the right lawyer to help you through a divorce, child custody, and/or financial situations resulting from divorce. From the moment I consulted Joy to the final signing of my divorce, she proceeded with professional communication, always returned my calls, answered my emails promptly and displayed professional acumen in the courtroom. Joy is honest and makes sure you're prepared for any outcome. She is top tier counsel, and worth every minute of her time. Lastly and more importantly, she has a good heart. She understands divorce is not easy, she helped me from near homelessness to a place of peace and safety in my life, and her staff is just as amazing. They conduct business with compassion, and they communicate promptly. You're treated with importance, not as if you're just a client. Joy and her firm are certainly highly recommended, and if you want to win, call her today!”
