Corona Spousal Support Attorney

How is alimony determined in Corona?

Corona family law attorney

Spousal support, also referred to as alimony, is frequently a major issue of contention in divorces. Early on in the process you may want to know whether it will be a factor in yours. If so, you most likely want to know how much it will be, whether you are hoping to receive payments or are anxious about being ordered to pay.

How much spousal support will I pay or receive? Spousal maintenance is based on a formula. That formula is based primarily on the difference between your income and your spouse's income. We know the formula.

Whether you are seeking spousal support or facing the possibility of paying support, our Corona divorce lawyers are here to help you. At the Law Offices of John Joseph Buckey, Jr. & Associates, we can provide effective solutions and clear answers to your concerns and questions.

Spousal Support Is in the Hands of the Judge

The formula the court uses to determine spousal support is discretionary. The judge has the right to deviate from it if he or she believes doing so is necessary to achieve a fair result.

Often, this means that temporary spousal support will start out at a certain amount based on the formula. As we move forward, we will work with you to determine whether you believe this amount is fair or not. If not, we will put together a compelling argument to convince the judge to make a change.

While the most common method of spousal support is monthly payments, there are alternatives. If it is in your interest, we can pursue a lump payment at the beginning. We will let you know your options. We will work with you to help you make the choices that are right for you, and we can also help with any spousal support modifications in the future in the event that you suffer a job loss or other major life event.
