Dealing with the unexpected after a divorce

No one can predict what the future will bring. After all, most newlyweds in Los Angeles do not anticipate divorcing, but it does happen from time to time that some couples simply find that even after years of marriage, they are no longer compatible and are better off going their separate ways.

Don't put off seeking a spousal support modification

When a couple in California divorces, oftentimes one spouse will be ordered to pay spousal support to the other. However, as time marches on, each spouse's life circumstances will change. When it comes to the paying spouse, it is possible that they may lose their job. Or, they may incur a significant expense, such as a hospital bill or car repair. Any of these situations could make it difficult, if not impossible, for the paying spouse to meet their spousal support obligations.

What steps need to be taken to end spousal support?

In California, not every award of spousal support is permanent. Moreover, certain life events can happen that result in the cessation of spousal support. It is important to know what these events are and what steps to take to end spousal support.

What's 'permanent spousal support' in California?

The last decade or so has seen the rise of many arguments with regard to a certain family law topic: alimony, or as it is called in California, spousal support. The focus of many of these discussions has been the award of a type of post-relationship payments known as permanent spousal support. While the name may be somewhat misleading, it is important for those going through a divorce in California, especially those with high incomes or a large number of assets, to understand how this type of alimony works.

Modifying child support requires a 'change in circumstances'

Most parents in California want to give their child the best life possible. They want their child to get a good education, enjoy extracurricular activities, take vacations, and they want to provide their child with a safe home, nutritious food and appropriate clothing. In the end, it is up to parents to provide for the child's financial needs, so the child can experience a well-rounded childhood.
