Spousal support is also known as alimony. Under the California spousal support laws, the court may require the higher earner, whether wife or husband, to assist the lower earner in the case of a divorce. This law is aimed at helping couples who lived together and had built a lifestyle together to have means of maintaining that lifestyle.

The services of this firm are very important especially when you feel that the amount of support that you have been requested to pay to your divorcee is too high, or when you want to be adequately compensated.
It is increasingly becoming rare for a judge to order permanent support even for marriages that lasted for more than 10 years before the divorce took place. Besides, California courts require spouses who are seeking support to back up their claims with appropriate evidence that they are not employed or are unable to support themselves after the divorce.
