Experienced Spousal Support Attorney

Alimony or spousal support is not an automatic part of a divorce under California law. The quality of the legal representation which you employ can make the difference between whether you receive alimony or not. It can also affect the amount of financial support you will receive and for how long.

At the Law Offices of Rossana Mitchell, our Chino Hills alimony attorney has extensive experience in building effective cases for spousal support that recognize the contributions a spouse has made to the marriage monetarily and otherwise. We understand the key role that appropriate levels of spousal support can have in allowing both spouses to be able to move on with their lives following a divorce. We are dedicated to pursuing a spousal support award that you can live with.

Types of Spousal Support

  • Temporary spousal support — This is designed to maintain the financial status quo during the divorce.
  • Permanent spousal support — This can last for life or until the receiving spouse remarries.

What Factors Are Considered in Determining Spousal Support?

When determining an award of permanent spousal support, the court will look at a variety of factors, including:

  • Length of the marriage
  • Both parties' incomes
  • Earning capacity
  • Age and health of the parties
  • Need
  • Ability to pay
