Spousal support, or alimony, is money that is put into place during or after a divorce in order to support the marital standard of living. There are many variables that go into determining spousal support, such as length of marriage, if there are young children, if the spouse has a job and what he or she is earning, either spouses medical condition, and a list of other factors the court considers. When you partner with Jess Legal, our spousal support lawyers can help you receive the support you are entitled to. With our years of experience, we can help you budget for what you’ll need in the future, as many of our clients underestimate these expenses. Sometimes just having an extra eye can make all of the difference.
For years, people thought prenuptial, and even post nuptial agreements were offensive, and if you asked for one, that you didn’t truly love that person. However, a more realistic view of prenuptials and post nuptial agreements have taken hold, and now they are considered extremely prudent for those looking to protect their pre-marital assets in case a divorce does occur (which is over half of all marriages). The family law team at Jess Legal near Sacramento can help you draw up a pre- or post nuptial agreement that is right for you. Since every situation is unique, your agreement will vary as well.
