When you are going through a divorce you might not be thinking about much except getting this marriage over with. You may want to speak with a Whittier alimony lawyer to see if this is something that you should consider making a part of your case. Alimony is not something that every divorce needs. If you had a prenuptial agreement that waived alimony then this would not apply to your divorce case. The Law Offices of Kyle R.

There are many factors that go into how much alimony you would receive, how long you would receive it for, and if you would even qualify for any. Which is why speaking with a lawyer to get some solid expectations is a good idea.
Now it is important to note that not every spousal support case is the same. Typically if you were married for over ten years you have a higher chance at getting alimony payments, but not always. If you were married for less than ten years, if you qualify the alimony payments would be for half the length of your marriage.
