Spousal Support

We Maximize Your Financial Security

Spousal support is often times one of the most contentious issues in divorce cases. Under California law, the purpose of awarding spousal support is to ensure the self-sufficiency of both parties, while protecting the lifestyle the parties had become accustomed to during their marriage.

In divorce cases involving large assets, debts and multimillion-dollar estates, the factors applied to determine the level of spousal support include the division of the community estate, each party’s respective income, the duration of the parties’ marriage and the parties’ marital standard of living, to name a few. Our focus is always on ensuring that the correct financial data is presented to the court to enable our clients to obtain the best possible results.

When preparing cases involving spousal support for clients of high-net worth, we rely on the expert testimony of forensic accountants, financial professionals and other specialists in this area.
