California Spousal Support (Alimony) Attorney Ensures Your Interests Are Protected
Knowledgeable lawyer helps clients in the Bakersfield area to achieve fair spousal support decisions
When you and your spouse divorce, there are a number of decisions you need to make that will have a long-term impact on your quality of life. One of the decisions the California courts generally make on behalf of those involved is whether or not one spouse must provide the other with monetary support, which is also known as spousal support. At Stephanie Falk Law Firm, I have extensive experience guiding clients in the Bakersfield area in divorce actions involving spousal support (alimony). Whether you are the recipient of support or must pay it, I offer skilled counsel in ensuring a result that protects your financial future.
Committed California counselor looks out for clients' financial security
When determining whether or not spousal support (alimony) should be granted, how much should be awarded, and how long it should continue, California judges weigh certain factors, including a couple’s length of marriage, their standard of living during the marriage, the relative income of each individual, and the needs of each spouse. Retaining an experienced spousal support (alimony) attorney can help you convince the court that you need support, increasing the chance that spousal support (alimony) will be awarded. Alternatively, I can also work to convince the judge that your ex-spouse does not need spousal support or needs less than he or she asked for.

At Stephanie Falk Law Firm, I represent clients who are seeking spousal support (alimony) as well as those who will be required to pay it. My clients are often concerned about whether they are required to pay spousal support (alimony) if their circumstances change. Others come to me if they are not receiving the spousal support (alimony) payments specified by the agreement. I can help you present evidence to the court as to why the amount you pay should be decreased or request that the court properly enforce the existing spousal support (alimony) agreement.
