When 2 individuals divorce the income that was used to support one household must now support two. One of the spouses can seek for spousal support as soon as the individuals separate, even before filing for divorce.
At Ellen Cronin Badeaux, LLC we assist individuals to get fair spousal support order that will allow them to leave their marriage in the most financially secure position possible.
Up until 6 months after divorce, any spousal support awarded is interim spousal support or alimony pendente lite. Interim spousal support is based on the need of one spouse and the ability of the other spouse to pay. An award of exclusive use of a family home, whether it is separate or community property shall be considered to reduce the amount of spousal support awarded. 6 months after divorce any spousal support is periodic.
All spousal support ends with:
> The remarriage of the former spouse receiving support.
> A judgment that the recipient has been living and intimately involved with another person.
> A judgment that the receiving spouse is no longer in need.
> The paying spouse is no longer able to pay.
> The death of either former spouse.
