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.

  • She has been a friend and a fighter!

    “My experience working with Joy over the last year has been very favorable. Joy is an amazing attorney. She is smart, professional, clever, strong, and compassionate. She will fight for your best interest and guide you through the process. While my divorce started in mediation it went straight down and dirty from the other side. I felt hopeless and wanted to give up. Joy has been kind and can hold her own to any attorney out there. She has been a friend and a fighter!”

  • Five stars doesn't do justice, Joy deserves 10 out of 5!

    “Joy is professional, caring, and will go out of her way to make sure her clients are represented.”

    Ran

  • If you have any family/custody issues do not hesitate to consult and hire Joy, she's a legal genie!

    “I came to Joy after several years of custody issues with my daughter that I thought would be resolved by itself. Initially, I would only see my daughter one night a week and one day on the weekend with no overnights. I tried to reason with my ex but with no success. The odds of getting equal custody (50/50) were not in my favor, but I figured something had to be done because I wasn't seeing my daughter and I didn't want to lose the precious time with my young daughter. I was scared of the legal cost they might incur during the process and the child support I will need to pay (my ex has not been working, or at least claimed to not be working).

    What started out as a simple custody case quickly escalated into a legal nightmare when the mother of my child filed a restraining order and tried every legal maneuver to prolong the custody hearing of our child. Joy and her team were able to diffuse the legal roller coasters I was going through, present the judge with the facts, and show the lack of credibility of my ex.

    Joy is professional, caring, and will go out of her way to make sure her clients are represented. On one of our court appearances, my ex managed to change the judge (a commissioner) to a different courthouse on the same day in the afternoon. Joy had another case in the afternoon and could not represent me, however, she managed to find just as good a replacement to represent me at a moment's notice free of charge! Sounds too good to be true.

    When I first came in to consult with Joy about my situation I was worried about the legal cost that might add up. I will never forget when she said "this will be the best money you ever spent". Boy was she right! I now have 50/50 custody, don't have to pay my ex as much child support as we originally anticipated, Joy managed to convince the judge to impute more than a minimum wage salary on my ex, but most of all I have the peace of mind my daughter will share equal time with both of her parents.

    If you have any family/custody issues do not hesitate to consult and hire Joy, she's a legal genie!
    I've said it many times and I'll continue to say it, thank you Joy!
