Burbank Spousal Support & Alimony

Attorneys Serving Throughout Los Angeles

The terms "spousal support" and "alimony" are interchangeable and refer to the money ordered to be paid from one spouse to another following a divorce. This is in addition to any child support payments. It is for the purpose of assisting the recipient with their financial situation despite their altered circumstances following the dissolution of the marriage.

Spousal support may be paid in one lump sum or in installments. Installment payments may be temporary or permanent, and in certain circumstances can also be modified at a later date. These factors, as well as the amount to be paid, are determined by the court as part of the divorce or modification process.

While child support payments are determined per a mathematical calculation provided for by law, spousal support relies much more on the determination of the court in each individual case. It is therefore vital that you have a competent divorce lawyer representing you and presenting a convincing case to the court.
