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.

When I first started the bankruptcy process it was very scary and stressful but thanks to Patricia and Monica they made the process better. When we had our first meeting with Patricia all my doubts and fear went away because she explained everything and answer all of our questions. Monica is very detailed and made sure we had everything in order. Patricia made sure we were ready for the day of the hearing and I'm very glad she did because it made it less stressful and we knew what to expect. I'm so glad that Monica was very detailed because..

If you have decided a divorce is the best route for you, I highly recommend working with Levi and his team. Calm and collected, Levi will guide you through the process.

Patricia has been so helpful and provided excellent service. My husband and I are so grateful for all the help she has provided to help me immigrate to the United States. We really could not have gotten through it without her help. A big thank you to Patricia\'s assistant, Ingrid as well for always being prompt with responses and helping us get all the paperwork ready at each stage. I highly recommend Patricia for anyone who needs immigration help.
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.
