Representing a Wide Range of Clients From All Walks of Life
At my family law office in Walnut Creek, California, I have had the opportunity to represent a wide range of clients from virtually every income level and earning capacity, with simple and complex tax issues, both wage earners and professionals, large and small business owners, with any number of minor children.
People have many questions, including:
- How long can I receive spousal support?

- How can I provide for my children and myself?
- How can you make sure my interests are protected and that the settlement is fair?
Temporary and Permanent Spousal Support
Initially, when you file for divorce, one spouse can seek temporary spousal support. It is based on California state guidelines. The figure is not permanent, but meant to support one spouse throughout the duration of the divorce process.
Permanent spousal support is figured differently than temporary spousal support. The amount and length of permanent spousal support depends on your attorney's ability to analyze what is called the marital standard of living in the context of over 15 factors set forth in the California Family Law Code and numerous court decisions.
