When you and your spouse divorce, there are a number of decisions you need to make that will have a long-term impact on your quality of life. One of the decisions the California courts generally make on behalf of those involved is whether or not one spouse will be required to provide the other with alimony, also known as spousal support. At Aaron M. Hudson Law Firm, I represent clients in the Rancho Cucamonga area and throughout California in divorce proceedings. If you are asked to pay spousal support, I will uphold your rights. I know that alimony is one of the most highly contested issues in divorce and will challenge whether any support is justified or try to limit the amount you are required to pay.
When determining whether or not alimony should be granted, how much should be awarded and for how long it should continue, California judges carefully appraise a couple’s length of marriage, their standard of living during the marriage, the relative income of each individual, and the needs of each spouse. Retaining an experienced alimony attorney can help you convince the court that your former spouse does not need alimony because they are capable of supporting themselves. Alternatively, I can also work to convince the judge that your ex-spouse needs less than he or she asked for and negotiate an award that is fairer based on the financial conditions of each spouse.
At Aaron M. Hudson Law Firm, I represent clients throughout California asked to make different kinds of alimony payments that may include:
I will undertake a thorough analysis of your spouse’s financial condition to help limit an award to one that is supported by the facts.
I also represent clients who wish to have a spousal support award reduced or ended. In many cases, the law allows for these changes. Support awards are often changed after:
I can help you present evidence to the court as to why the amount you pay should be decreased or request that the court properly enforce the alimony agreement when conditions warrant stopping payments altogether.
At Aaron M. Hudson Law Firm, I represent clients throughout California in alimony negotiations to protect their rights and limit payments to a fair amount. Call me at 909-543-1837 or contact me online to schedule a consultation at my Rancho Cucamonga office.
