Palimony In California

California law recognizes palimony, which is compensation that one member of an unmarried couple makes to the other after they separate. Claims for palimony are sometimes called Marvin claims, in reference to the case of the late actor Lee Marvin, who was sued by his longtime girlfriend for financial support.

How Does The Process Work?

A palimony claim is brought to the court as a civil suit and treated as a contractual agreement. When looking at whether or not someone is eligible for palimony, the court may consider a range of factors, including whether the partners lived together and whether one partner was supporting the other.

Whatever side of a claim you are on, it is crucial to have a lawyer on your side to make a strong case on your behalf. Significant financial evidence may be needed to support or defend against a Marvin claim, and a lawyer with experience in these complex matters is best suited to persuade the court.
