Divorce is an all-encompassing transition that separates you from your partner physically, emotionally, and financially. Separation from a partner can lead to fears of financial insecurity. You may have depended on your partner for monetary support, or you might have forgone a career to care for your family and are left without a certain career path. Regardless of where you stand, spousal support, also known as spousal maintenance or alimony, helps to ensure neither partner is left financially compromised. This allows you to continue receiving support when you cannot support yourself independently.
After a divorce, it’s important that both partners are financially situated. In some marriages, both partners were financially interdependent and cannot manage on their own. While spousal support is not required in cases like this, it may still be beneficial depending on the circumstances. When deciding spousal support, the courts will consider many factors including:
This list is not exhaustive. Just as there are different cases, there is no one form of alimony that will fit every couple’s needs. Therefore, you may receive or provide varying levels of spousal support depending on your circumstances. Your case may have more variables to consider that impact your support settlement, such as your health, domestic abuse, and more. Furthermore, you might be required to provide evidence of each condition, which is a matter suited for the assistance of a family law attorney.

Thank you Miranda and team for the excellent service provided. Miranda is a compassionate, understating, extremely knowledgeable and professional attorney. Her team was always on top of everything making my legal process less stressful. I could never thank Miranda and her assistant Ingrid for holding my hand throughout this difficult process (literally). Miranda is one of the BEST immigration lawyers ever! I would definitely recommend her.
They represented my custody case and handled it like it is their own case and they are best in Monterey County.
The entire team at MMM are superstars! I appreciate all the time and prep that went into my original case many years ago. And now recently, I asked for some help on a follow-up custody matter that I felt I could handle myself but just needed their expertise to properly represent all the important details. They are knowledgeable, extremely thorough, and prepared me for every possible scenario. I can't thank them enough!
My partner and I sought legal advice on bringing my fiance' to the United States with this office after having called a few immigration attorney offices around Monterey County. Having never sought legal advice before it was a refreshing experience in which we both really felt that Patricia listened intently to our goals and needs, and then not only gave us thorough advice, but also she really showed a lot of empathy with our situation and all the challenges we faced in what we trying to do. I would definitely recommend this office for anyone who is unclear about what..
Working with Patricia was a professional encounter unlike any other, an absolute 5-star experience. From the first moment, we walked into our consultation until the moment our case was closed and my husband walked away with his permanent resident card Patricia was communicative, professional, and thorough. Her team contacted us every step of the way providing valuable process and law changes we would not have been able to catch if we tried to navigate this endeavor alone. Patricia answered our endless question stream with thoughtfulness and care, calling us countless times to ensure we were clear on every piece of..
Last year, I had just moved in the area and needed a family law attorney for a custody case. The process of finding/choosing an attorney could be daunting. However, when I went in for my first consultation with Levi my stress level was immediately mollified. He was personable, which made me feel comfortable to discuss my personal matters freely. I had a lot of questions of the legal process that would take place and he took the time to explain everything with meticulous detail. More importantly, when I called Levi he returned my phone calls in a timely/professional time frame...
