If you have been through a divorce, or are currently going through one, you have likely heard of alimony. Alimony, or spousal support, occurs when one spouse is ordered by the court to pay the other money either during or after the divorce. Spousal support can be put in place to help one individual maintain their marital standard of living, while they work on getting a degree, or other means to be able to support themselves.
In today’s blog post, we are going to discuss the different types of alimony in Sacramento.

Thanks to Hollywood, many people think of your last will and testament as what the preacher says as he is standing over your coffin at your funeral. This is far from the case. Your will is something you hopefully have prepared long before your death in order for “your will” to be done with regards to your property after your death.
The team at Jess Legal near Sacramento offers estate planning services, as well as divorce and family law services. Below, we’ll take a brief look at what a will is. Contact us today for a consultation!
WHAT IS A WILL?
Wills have been around for a long time, showing up in ancient Greece and Rome. Wills were made only by men and only if they did not have a male heir to inherit their property. They began as verbal wills, but eventually began to be written down.
A will is a legal document whereby you state your desire for what will happen to your property after you pass. It also involves who will...more
You are over the moon in love and can’t wait to get married. In fact, the date is getting closer. The venue has been picked out. The flowers have been arranged. The bridesmaid dresses have been ordered. And a wedding photographer has been chosen. However, there is something hovering over you that you are struggling to finalize before the wedding and that is a prenuptial agreement.
A prenuptial agreement has such a negative connotation associated with it. If you ask for one, it’s almost as if you are demonized and that this somehow reflects on the love you have for the other person. However, there’s nothing wrong with being realistic, and since half of all marriages in the United States end in divorce, it’s best to prepare for the worst case scenario.

There are some things in life that you have to do even though you have no desire to do them. For example, cleaning your toilet usually does not rank high on the happiness scale of things to do in this world, but it’s something that must be done for sanitary reasons. Cooking dinner after a long day of work and running the kids to and fro is something you may have no desire to do at times, yet you have to eat, and you prefer to eat something nutritious rather than something not.
Divorce is another one of those events in life that you’d rather not do, but if your relationship is coming to an end, it’s a necessary step so that you can move on with your life.
The team of divorce attorneys at Jess Legal understands that you’d rather not be sitting in the chair in front of us, telling us the details of your life and trying to figure out what your life will look like once this is over. However, we’re glad that you have chosen us as your divorce lawyer of choice in Sacramento. Below, we’ll...more
