Palmdale Spousal Support Attorneys With Years of Experience
If you are going through a divorce, you may have concerns about how child support and spousal support payments will affect your financial situation after the divorce.
At Michelizzi, Schwabacher, Ward & Collins (MSWC), our experienced Lancaster child support attorneys will help ensure your child support or spousal support arrangement is fair. For more than 60 years, we have helped families in Lancaster, California, and throughout the Antelope Valley navigate the financial challenges of divorce.
In California, parents have a legal responsibility to financially support their children until they are 18. The amount of child support you will be required to pay is based on guidelines that consider the incomes and earning potential of you and your spouse, your custody arrangement, visitation schedule and other factors. Our lawyers will help ensure that your income and other factors are represented correctly, and that the child support plan you receive is fair, whether you are paying or receiving support.
When determining alimony in a divorce, the California courts consider several factors such as the length of the marriage, the ability of each spouse to pay support and each spouse's ability to work. Unlike child support guidelines, the courts review alimony claims on a case-by-case basis and have broad discretion in determining the amount and duration of spousal support. Whether you are requesting spousal support or you require defense against unreasonable terms, we will aggressively advocate on your behalf.
Additionally, if your circumstances have changed, our firm can assist you with spousal support and child support modifications.
