Berkeley Family Law Attorney for Spousal Support
After long marriages, the claim to spousal support is often one of the most significant issues to be resolved at divorce.
Many family law attorneys take a “formula” approach to the issue based on mathematical guidelines. A rote, formula approach to this issue ignores the factors that a court is required to consider when determining the amount of spousal support at trial. It also ignores the creative solutions that can produce the right result for you.
The determination of the appropriate amount of spousal support should consider the factors which are unique to you and your situation. These factors are listed at Family Code section 4320.
The best result is the result that responds to your unique situation. To learn more about spousal support, please contact me to discuss your individual circumstances.
