As many Californians know, divorce can be an emotional process. Individuals who once loved each other can find themselves arguing over seemingly minor details with their disputes tainted by distrust, anger and sadness. Depending on the circumstances surrounding a divorce, though, some family law issues may be more at issue than others.
Californians who have given up their own careers and educations to help raise a family or support another spouse may find themselves feeling especially cheated when a divorce threatens to leave them on rocky financial footing. After all, in these instances the primary wage-earner can simply walk away and retain his or her financial well-being, whereas a lower or non-earning spouse can be left with insufficient financial resources to maintain his or her expected standard of living.
Oftentimes, this is unfair. By taking the proper legal steps during a divorce, though, those who are left in a dire financial position on account of their missed career opportunities during marriage, caused by supporting a family, may be able to successfully seek spousal support. In order to secure alimony, an individual must prove certain legal elements, many of which are not clear cut. This means that the matter is often ripe for legal argument. Therefore, Californians who want to seek spousal support may want to acquire the assistance of a qualified legal professional who knows how to build a strong case.
