Spousal Support Lawyers in Anaheim
Spousal support, also known as alimony, is the money paid from one spouse to another during or after a divorce. There are different types of alimony agreements, but they all have the same purpose: to ensure that a lesser-earning spouse is able to enjoy the same standard of living after marriage ends.
The courts do not favor wives receiving alimony over husbands—all that matters is the difference in income between the two.

While there are factors that contribute to a court’s calculations regarding alimony, many of these factors are subject to interpretation. How the facts of your case are presented will ultimately decide the shape of your agreement. Our attorneys work tirelessly to gather evidence on your behalf to build a trial-ready case, whether you are looking to collect spousal support or defend yourself from its obligations.
Ultimately, the fastest way to resolve your dispute will be to prepare your case for trial and use it to negotiate an agreement out of court. We are not afraid of a court battle, but we recognize that most people would prefer to have their issues resolved privately and quickly. Out-of-court negotiation relieves our clients of financial and emotional burdens more efficiently and cost-effectively than litigation.
Mediation is a legal process where two parties will meet with a neutral third party. The mediator will facilitate a good-faith dialogue between both parties to help them come to an agreement. The mediator takes no sides, provides no judgments, or makes any decisions. He or she simply helps the two parties come to an agreement if at all possible. California courts will often require couples to attempt mediation to create a spousal support agreement before attempting trial. We have extensive experience with mediation, and we know how to negotiate for the most beneficial arrangement possible for our clients.
