Los Angeles Alimony Attorney

The Sperling Law Firm & Alimony for Los Angeles Residents

Divorce can be hard, especially when support and alimony is the issue.

Whether you are the spouse requesting spousal support or paying the spouse, it is in your best interests to consult with an attorney that specializes in divorce. A lawyer will help to make sure you understand what the law provides in your specific circumstances. We advise our clients and work to ensure that your legal rights are protected and that any order or agreement for alimony is fair, equitable, and an adequate reflection of the specific needs of your matter. alimony-los-angeles

An order for alimony may provide a spouse with temporary financial assistance during a proceeding for termination or alteration of marital status. Alimony may also be ordered to be paid to a spouse for a specific length of time after the marriage has been dissolved and, in some cases, an order for support may be permanent. The parties may contractually agree on an amount of support payable and request that the court enter the agreement as an order.
