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?

  • She's the best there is!!

    “Joy Kraft Miles recently appeared on KABC radio's show So What's Your Problem? She gave great legal advice to our listeners, she is a very caring person! You can't do any better than Joy if you are facing or involved in any Family Law Matter........She's the best there is!!”

    Stan

  • She will go out of her way to help you out!

    “Very nice and helpful lady, she helped me out a lot. I recommend everyone to her, she will go out of her way to help you out!”

    Alberto

  • Your encouragement, your wits, and intelligence really pulled me out of a hardship (to say the least) that now feels like a distant memory, though your efforts and giving were remarkable and effectively memorable.

    “Joy, your name gives meaning to what you bring in life! Thank you for being an exceptionally wonderful person. Your encouragement, your wits, and intelligence really pulled me out of a hardship (to say the least) that now feels like a distant memory, though your efforts and giving were remarkable and effectively memorable. You are one amazing woman. I want to wish blessings upon your work, your office, and your gorgeous little family. May God bless you infinitely.”

    Sara

  • Her main concern was my children and their well being.

    “My attorney was very informative, patient and understanding. ”

    Liliana

  • 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.”
