Going through a divorce can be a challenging time. Spousal support, also known as alimony, is a tool that is offered in some cases to help you move past your divorce and get your life going in the right direction. At the law firm of Smith & Nowlin, we have more than 35 years of experience in helping people through this emotional time. Our goal is to take as much of the weight off your shoulders as possible and see that you get through this experience successfully.

Contact a dedicated alimony and spousal support attorney at (805) 650-8188 to discuss your case.

The goal of alimony is to provide additional financial support to a spouse who, to some extent, was reliant on the income of the other spouse during the course of the marriage. At Smith & Nowlin, we are available to represent people seeking spousal support, as well as those defending against paying what they feel to be an unfair amount of spousal support.

On a short-term basis, the amount of spousal support or alimony is based on a formula. For the long-term, it is based on the discretion of the court or the judge. It is based on a wide range of factors, including the length of marriage prior to divorce, ability to work, need for vocational training, and more. When you choose us to represent you, we will work hard to see that your rights are protected.

We offer personal care to all of our clients. At the outset of your case, we will take the time to sit down with you and learn about you and your situation. We want to know what your goals are, what your needs are. When we move forward, we will build a legal strategy that is devoted to getting what is right for you. We will stand by your side.
