Knowledgeable Sacramento Spousal Support And Alimony Attorneys

In divorce cases, parties have to protect their financial futures, whether it is ensuring you have enough support to continue on your own since the separation or protecting yourself from a spouse who is seeking an unwarranted amount of support. The attorneys at Gary, Till & Burlingham are well-prepared to help you protect your financial future and advocate for you in court if settlement negotiations are unsuccessful.

Spousal support (alimony) is ordered in two stages: Temporary support is formulaic and calculated by computer software; counties use slightly different formulas in calculating spousal support. Permanent support is paid after judgment is entered, and is calculated according to a number of different factors listed in the statute, and it is very much in a court's discretion.

Our spousal support and alimony attorneys will carefully analyze both your financial picture and your spouse's financial situation to help you determine how a court might rule. Before the divorce is complete, we will help you in the temporary support process to ensure the order is fairly calculated using the statewide computer guideline. We pay particular attention to ascertaining income and other items which impact support calculations

Our attorneys will help you analyze your spousal support case. We are committed to helping you obtain a fair, long-term support order that accounts for your personal situation.
