Livermore Spousal Support Lawyers

Many couples operate as a team while they are married, making decisions together and capitalizing on each partner's strengths to put their family in the best position possible. When couples later divorce or dissolve their domestic partnership, accounting for these decisions and the unique ways each partner contributed to the marriage can be incredibly challenging.

At the Law Offices of Cherie T. Davis, our Livermore spousal support attorneys zealously advocate on behalf of clients throughout the Bay Area who are ending their marriages and need spousal support  to move forward with their lives, or are being asked to make alimony payments. Spousal support/alimony is awarded by a judge after consideration of all relevant factors, including:

  • The couple's standard of living while married
  • Earning capacity of both parties
  • Contributions made to the education or career of a spouse
  • Length of the marriage
  • Age and health of the parties

Our experienced family law attorneys work closely with clients to determine the amount of support they need from their former spouse, and then we fight hard to help them secure the best arrangement possible.

California Alimony / Spousal Support Modification

When spousal maintenance is determined at the time of a divorce, judges are making their best assessments of what will happen in the future. When life events significantly change the financial situation of either person, a modification may be needed in order to maintain an equitable support arrangement. We provide ongoing representation to clients, helping them petition the court for changes to support awards throughout their lives.
