The financial impact of divorce can be the most difficult to deal with. For those who have businesses, significant assets and other complex financial situations it can be daunting to go through this process without confident guidance from an attorney. Melamed Law Group is a Beverly Hills-based firm that focuses exclusively on representing clients in divorce and family law matters. We offer extensive experience in family law matters and commit to providing highly personalized services for each of our clients.
Types Of Support In California
There are two types of spousal support: temporary and post-judgment support. Temporary support can be granted based on the immediate needs of an individual while the divorce is pending. Post-judgment support is the final amount determined in the divorce judgment. At Melamed Law Group, we assist clients throughout all steps of the process, from determining support to handling legal matters involving spousal support modifications.
How Is Spousal Support Determined?
Spousal support (commonly referred to as alimony) is determined based on a number of factors. One of the most important factors is the length of the marriage. Generally speaking, a marriage under 10 years is considered a short-term marriage, and you can receive support for half of the length of the marriage. Long-term marriages typically are 10 years or longer, and support payments can be much longer than half of the marriage.
Key Experience From A Highly Experienced Family Law Attorney
Unlike child support, the guidelines for determining spousal support are not as strict. Many factors go into determining spousal support, which make it even more important that you are represented by an experienced Beverly Hills spousal support lawyer. Having handled complex and high-asset/high-earner divorce cases, attorney Veronika Melamed has deep knowledge of California law. She utilizes her business and finance skills to carefully craft and develop a strategic approach to resolving legal matters.
