Negotiating For Fair And Full Financial Support
Divorce can have devastating financial repercussions on your life whether you are divorcing as a parent or as an individual without children. California judges award financial support to help individuals and families overcome these challenges and transition to their post-divorce life.
In order to receive the fair financial support you deserve from your former spouse or partner, however, it is critical to know which factors affect support calculations. At Lowenstein Brown, APLC, our family law attorneys have an intimate understanding of California’s child, spousal and partner support guidelines. We leverage this insight when we work on your behalf in negotiations and present compelling arguments in court.
Whether you are seeking support or defending a request, Lowenstein Brown, APLC has the experience and knowledge to provide the court with a clear understanding of the relevant factors to provide evidence that a court can rely on.
What Financial Orders Are Considered In Divorce?
The state of California has support guidelines that are among the most intricate in the county. Judges rely on an array of facts to determine each party’s financial obligations. When you meet with our lawyers, we will assess your financial needs and circumstances to develop a strong claim for:
- Child support. Our attorneys will petition for child support orders that reflect your income, the time you spend with your children, and relevant deductions. A request for support will also seek orders for shared expenses such as day care and uninsured medical and dental costs.
- Spousal support. It is up to the judge’s discretion to award alimony or spousal support. We present persuasive evidence for spousal support when we identify your financial needs based on the standard of living that was established during your marriage, the length of your marriage and your age and health.
Securing Back Support
If your former partner or spouse fails to pay the court-ordered support, we will take action to secure late payments. There are many enforcement tools the court can use to receive this money, including bank levies, liens against property and contempt proceedings. You can rely on us to determine the most effective approach according to your situation.
