Addressing Child And Spousal Support Issues Head-On
Tulare Alimony Lawyer
When you are involved in a divorce, one of the more challenging issues to resolve often centers around support. Should the court award alimony and, if so, should it be permanent or only for the length of time necessary for the recipient to develop the skills to be self-sufficient? How can you have confidence that your children are receiving the support they need? An experienced family law attorney can provide the counsel you need to ensure that your interests are being protected.
At the Law Office of Eric T. Hamilton, I have worked with men and women in family law matters, including spousal and child support, for more than 10 years. As a sole practitioner, I will personally handle all matters related to your case. I take a serious approach to your legal problems, providing caring and informative counsel combined with vigorous advocacy.
Will I Have To Pay Alimony?
I will carefully review the factors the California courts consider when evaluating whether a grant of alimony is appropriate, including:
- The length of the marriage
- The age and health of the parties
- The earning capacity of the parties
- The style of living to which you were accustomed
If alimony or spousal support is warranted, I will help you determine the amount, frequency and duration of payments.
How Much Will Child Support Payments Be?
I will review all proposed child support orders for compliance with California guidelines, confirming that all relevant income, including self-employment, seasonal and commission-based income, is correctly included in the calculation. If you are the payer, I will verify that you can afford to pay the amount established by the guidelines. If not, I will seek a reduction from the court. I will also handle any other requests for deviation from the guidelines, including reductions based on custody time.
I will work with you at any stage of a support issue, whether you have just filed for divorce and seek temporary support or you seek support modification. I will prepare and file all necessary documentation and will represent you in any hearings or proceedings.
