Southern California Divorce Alimony Lawyer for Men
Spousal Maintenance Should be Just as Fair for Men
Men know instinctively that alimony awards are biased toward spousal support for the women. Under California state law, the courts are supposed to apply a fair calculation that takes into account economic factors for both spouses, but the truth is that men still face a significant gender bias.
At Southern California Dad’s Law, we stand up and protect men’s rights in divorce court. We make sure that the spousal maintenance calculations are applied fairly and consider the wife’s potential on the job market. Alimony comes in two categories: temporary maintenance and permanent support.
Integrity is Paramount. Your Interests are Our Number One Priority.
Temporary maintenance is determined by examining the financial need of the wife against the husband’s ability to pay. The calculation is based on a state guideline that determines the monthly amount of alimony and the period of time it should be paid. Permanent spousal support is calculated based on the respective income, employment and opportunities in the marketplace for the wife and the husband. Your attorney will need to know how to fight to make sure that all factors are examined fairly.
