Alimony Lawyer in Walnut CA

Get expert advice about support payments from your alimony lawyer in Walnut CA.

Alimony Lawyer in Walnut CAAlimony orders are most often included as part of a divorce or separation agreement. However, alimony may also be ordered in cases where a domestic violence restraining order has been issued. Regardless of the reason you are now concerned about alimony, you can turn to Torrence L. Howell for help. As an alimony lawyer in Walnut CA that also has extensive experience in all kinds of family law issues, he can use all the strategies at his disposal to make sure you get the fairest possible support order in even the most complicated case.

How Much is Enough When it Comes to Alimony?

Unfortunately, there is sometimes a tendency for exes to ask for outrageous amounts of alimony out of spite towards their former partner. This only serves to increase tensions and draw out the legal process even further. For an objective idea of what amount of alimony to expect, let your alimony attorney in Walnut CA come up with a figure based on the following factors that the court will consider when setting alimony:

  • How long the couple was married
  • The income or earning capacity of each person
  • The age and health of each person
  • The standard of living shared during the marriage
  • Childcare responsibilities of the supported partner
  • Any history of domestic violence

Alimony Doesn’t Have to Last Forever

Although the court’s final alimony order is known as “permanent” alimony, few orders actually specify lifetime alimony. Depending on the circumstances, you may end up with one of the following three kinds of permanent alimony orders:

  • Transitional Alimony: A one-time alimony payment commonly used to cover a big expense like moving or a new vehicle for the supported spouse.
  • Rehabilitative Alimony: Monthly payments awarded for a set period of time (typically up to half the length of the marriage) to allow a partner to develop marketable skills and become self-supporting.
  • Lifetime Alimony: If spouses were married 10 years or more, truly permanent alimony may be ordered. Monthly payments will continue until the supported spouse remarries or the spouse paying support passes away.

Whether you are the spouse paying support or the one receiving it, your alimony lawyer in Walnut CA will work hard to ensure you receive a fair and appropriate order.

Even if you have been ordered to pay alimony for a long period of time, the amount may not be set in stone. When circumstances merit, you can petition for an alimony modification to ensure the order remains fair as years go by. If you believe an alimony modification is in order, ask your alimony lawyer in Walnut CA right away.

My ex-wife hired an attorney which prompted me to do so for our divorce. Torrence Howell was highly recommended from a friend of mine who used Torrence’s services for a divorce just like mine. The results came out much better than he ever thought it would. With all things being equal I felt Torrence would
