Q:
Can I receive enough alimony from my San Francisco divorce to maintain the lifestyle to which I am accustomed?

A:

When you met your husband, he was rich and treated you in a way you had never experienced before. From lavish gifts to an expensive home, he was more than willing to share his wealth with you. After you became married, you got used to this type of lifestyle, and so did your children. You put them in costly private schools and enrolled them in a variety of pricey extra-curricular activities.

Now that your husband wants a divorce, you wonder if you’ll be able to continue living the lifestyle you and your kids are accustomed to. You are a stay-at-home mom, and your only source of income is your husband. Will you receive enough alimony to support you, the kids, and the life you have made? Here, a San Francisco divorce attorney discusses the matter.

A Variety of Factors Are Considered

  • When determining the amount of alimony you will receive, a judge looks at a variety of factors. For instance, the length of your marriage will be taken into account, as well as how much income you and your husband earned during the partnership and what you could make in the future. Additionally, your ages and health are also considered.
