Enforce or Modify Spousal Support
Have your circumstances changed in a way that necessitates an adjustment
to your spousal support order? Perhaps you were ordered to make monthly
alimony payments, but you have lost your job, or your ex has remarried.
You can ask the court to modify spousal support, but you must be able to
prove that you have experienced a "significant change in circumstance."
Our spousal support lawyer can help you through the process.
On the other hand, you can also ask the court to enforce spousal support
if your ex is refusing to make their alimony payments. Once you show the
court that your ex is wrongfully violating a spousal support order, they
will be in contempt of court until they comply with the court order.
Types of Spousal Support in California
Depending on the details of your case, spousal support could take many
different forms and can be awarded to either spouse. Our experienced Glendora
alimony lawyer can help you determine which options would be best for
There are several different types of alimony to consider:
Temporary Alimony: A great majority of couples who undergo a divorce make the decision to
live apart from one another before the divorce is finalized. Temporary
alimony grants one spouse the support necessary to do this. Eventually,
temporary alimony will be replaced by the final agreement.
Rehabilitative Alimony: If a spouse needs to complete job training or additional education in
order to become more independent, rehabilitative alimony helps support
that party until they become self-supporting.
Transitional Alimony: In some cases, ongoing support isn’t necessary, but one-time support
may be needed. Transitional alimony can be used to help cover a down payment
on a home or car, for example.
Permanent Alimony: If a couple has been married for more than a decade, and then decides
to divorce, the eligible party may receive lifetime spousal support or
alimony. In other cases, this may also simply refer to support that is
ordered by the court.
Over time, certain circumstances may make it possible to modify your alimony
agreement. Our firm can help you reach a fair solution to this situation
as well and petition the court for appropriate changes to be made.
