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?

  • It is a pleasure working with her.

    “Joy has been representing me in the past 18 months in a very professional manner. It is a pleasure working with her.”

    Former Client

  • Bottom line a stellar attorney!

    “She worked well with the other side too--finding creative compromises but firm when she needed to be.”

    Erika

  • Attorney Joy Kraft Miles's character and professionalism are above reproach.

    “I am a baby boomer who found himself in a legal battle for my children (infant twins). There were many issues that weighed against me getting custody of my children.

    1. My age vs. the mother's age.
    2. The fact that I live on the east coast.
    3. There were paternity issues.
    4. A lot of accusations made against me which were not true.
    5. A move away order to another country.

    Just to name a few.

    I felt overwhelmed and lost for 8 months and did not know if I was going to be able to get my children or ever see them again. Through it all, Attorney Joy Kraft Miles and her team stayed the course and amassed all of the documentation to prove that the truth was not being told by the mother. They presented a defense that was structured and exact. While opposing counsel was not as prepared. Their hard work paid off, I now have custody of my children. Opposing counsel also was asking for an ungodly amount of money, they wanted me to pay for her legal fees. That was also taken off the table because of the amount of work and fact-finding by Attorney Joy Kraft Miles and her firm. The entire firm from her Mother on down makes you feel like family, which I have to tell you made this a lot easier for me. Attorney Joy Kraft Miles's character and professionalism are above reproach. If you ever find yourself up against a wall and you don't know where to turn look no further than Attorney Joy Kraft Miles.
