Spousal Support

For many individuals contemplating or going through a divorce, spousal support — also known as alimony — may seem like an inevitable source of acrimony. While this aspect of separation can be contentious, with the right lawyer, the process of determining alimony can be both fair and favorable.

I am attorney Gregory J. Pedrick, and I bring a personal, sympathetic approach to resolving family law disputes that is backed by two decades of litigation and problem solving skills. I know that, more than anything, my clients who are going through a divorce seek certainty in the face of rapidly changing circumstances. I work tirelessly to help resolve disputes in their favor, and also give them the peace of mind they need to begin the next stage of their lives.

I can help you whether you are currently locked in a dispute with your former spouse regarding alimony, or you have assets that are likely to be disputed during a divorce. Call 818-528-4936 or 661-591-4132 for a confidential consultation.

Determining spousal support in California is very different from determining child support. Courts do not use set formulas to determine who is entitled to receive alimony, or the amount and duration of payments. Instead, judges look at many factors, including:

  • Duration of the marriage
  • Income of the spouses
  • Marital assets
  • Contributions made by one spouse during the marriage, including financial support for education
  • Sacrifices made by one spouse during the marriage, such as forfeiting work to raise children

Having a qualified lawyer represent you during divorce proceedings ensures that a judge has the information necessary to reach a fair decision that accounts for your financial resources and needs. I approach these disputes with the goal of resolving them so as to allow individuals to retain amicable ties whenever possible — but am ready and willing to act aggressively in order to ensure that my client's interests are protected.
