Palm Desert Alimony Information

Alimony Law

Alimony, termed spousal support in some states, is awarded if one divorcing spouse earns significantly more than the other. The court also looks at the standard of living during the marriage and the future earning capacity of the spouse receiving alimony.

Do You Need an Alimony Lawyer?

Divorce is an emotional time, so it is in your best interest to use the services of a Palm Desert family law lawyer to handle the alimony issue. The lawyer handling the divorce may be able to negotiate a realistic resolution to whether alimony will be paid or received.

What sort of issues can I seek legal help with?

Specialized legal help is available for most legal issues. Each case is unique; seeking legal help is a smart first step toward understanding your legal situation and seeking the best path toward resolution for your case. An experienced lawyer understands the local laws surrounding your case and what your best legal options might be. More importantly, there are certain situations and circumstances - such as being charged with a crime - where you should always seek experienced legal help.

Top Questions to Ask a Lawyer

  • What is the usual process to resolve my case? How long will it take to resolve this?
  • What are likely outcomes of a case like mine? What should I expect?

An experienced lawyer should be able to communicate a basic "road map" on how to proceed. The lawyer should be able to walk you through the anticipated process, key considerations, and potential pitfalls to avoid. Once you've laid out the facts of your situation to the lawyer, he/she should be able to frame expectations and likely scenarios to help you understand your legal issue.

Does firm size matter?

For most consumer legal issues, the size of the practice is much less important than the experience, competence, and reputation of the attorney(s) handling your case. Among the most important factors when choosing an attorney are your comfort level with the attorney or practice and the attorney's track record in bringing about quick, successful resolutions to cases similar to yours.
