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

  • Immediate and specific tax consequences to each party
  • History of any domestic violence

WHAT DO OUR CLIENTS
HAVE TO SAY?

  • I was very impressed with the efficiency in this office.

    “They work well together, did what they said they would do, and produced the result I wanted. ”

    Former Client

  • There were no surprises.

    “My co-worker recommended Kraft Miles for our Family Trust. They themselves had received absolute satisfaction with their services. They were very helpful and explained the details of its importance, the pros and cons and what to expect on fees to be paid. There were no surprises. All our questions were answered to layman's term, all phone calls were returned in a timely manner. Satisfied with their services. Highly recommended.”

    Teresa

  • 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.”

    Lisa

  • She handles each matter with care

    “I am a family lawyer. I regularly refer matters to Joy with confidence. She handles each matter with care. Joy is always looking for ways to improve her practice”

    Peter W.

    “I have been represented by this firm for over a year now and Joy has displayed the utmost professionalism to me and my case. She continues to keep our best interests at hand and makes every effort to prevail. Her communication is effective and she is well respected. I was referred to her and I am very pleased with her integrity and her style. She has made a true impact on me and on our case and I believe she holds the same values for all her clients. I would recommend her and her staff without hesitation. Honest and dependable. Never have I felt like I wasn't receiving top-notch representation. A++++++”
