Divorce, Uncontested Settlements And Contested Courtroom Litigation
Separating from your spouse can make for a challenging time in your life, and there is much to consider. This is especially true if you and/or your spouse has significant assets, or if you have children together. It is important that you have someone on your side advocating for your rights and best interests throughout the divorce process. Whether this is through mediation or litigation, we are there for you every step of the way.
Spousal Support, Alimony
In some divorce cases, spousal support is awarded to the lesser earning spouse in order to provide them with financial assistance while learning to live autonomously. For marriages that lasted longer than 10 years, one spouse could be ordered to pay spousal support to the other spouse until they are remarried or either spouse dies. Spousal support can be a complicated issue for both the paying party and the party receiving support. Regardless of what side you are on, it’s important to speak with an attorney about your rights and interests.
Property Division: California Is A Community Property State
In a community property state, such as California, it is assumed that both the property and the debt that is obtained or accrued during the marriage belongs to the couple equally. Therefore it needs to be accurately valued and then distributed in a way that is fair. Exceptions to community property laws are few and include property specifically protected by provisions of a prenuptial agreement, as long as the assets have not been commingled with marital assets. Other exceptions may include an inheritance by either spouse.
