Post-Divorce Support Attorney in Pasadena

Do you need post-divorce support?

A divorcing couple will have many decisions to make when working out a settlement, including child custody and support if there are any children, as well as property division. Post-divorce support can also be an issue requiring an agreement or, if there is a dispute, a court order. One of the main purposes of support is to help the spouse receiving the support to maintain the same standard of living that occurred during the marriage. It is also used to give a spouse time to become self-sufficient. In some situations the court may also order that the spouse providing support purchase insurance, buy an annuity or establish a trust fund that will provide a means of support after their death.

If you are planning to divorce, contact a Pasadena divorce lawyer to find out the laws pertaining to support and the amount of financial assistance you can expect in a settlement. The Law Offices of Makupson & Howard has helped many individuals not only obtain a divorce, but also receive spousal support. We are skilled litigators and tough negotiators when it comes to representing the interests of our clients.

Pasadena Post-Divorce Support Lawyer

Spousal support is separate from property division. When consider the amount and duration of support to award, the court will take into consideration:

  • The standard of living during the marriage
  • The income of each spouse
  • Other financial resources of each spouse
  • The length of the marriage
  • The age and physical condition of each spouse
  • The ability of an unemployed spouse to generate future income

Support can be permanent or temporary, usually depending on the duration of a marriage. Most permanent support is awarded in marriages that have lasted over 10 years. Changing a support agreement or order at a later point in time can be extremely difficult. Attorneys from our will ensure that your rights are protected early-on and you receive the best possible settlement.
