Skilled Representation In Spousal Support Cases

Many parents going through a divorce or legal separation wonder how they will be able to afford living on one income when they have grown accustomed to a two-income household. Often, they seek financial assistance in the form of spousal support. 

My name is Mike Darlington. I strive to help individuals determine their financial needs for immediate and long-term spousal support and child support. Armed with over 35 years of legal experience, I will aggressively fight to obtain the maximum financial contribution you deserve.

Spousal Support Determinations

When couples file for divorce, spousal support, also referred to as alimony, may be granted. When determining whether or not to award this support, the court considers:

  • The length of the marriage
  • Any disparity of income
  • The standard of living during the marriage

Many variables affect potential support payments. As your attorney, I will use my knowledge of complex financial principles to maximize the support you are eligible to receive. Having served in the financial sector before entering the legal field, I am able to analyze complex mortgage and banking documents. I use this information to identify possible tax obligations, which may affect your support payment case. 

Unlike child support orders, parties are not required to pay alimony in California. It is up to the judge’s discretion to award spousal support. When you hire me, I will make it my mission to present a compelling case that resonates with the judge.
