How Alimony Works

May 28, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

When a couple divorces, one of the issues is whether alimony will be paid. Alimony is more likely if one spouse was financially supporting the other or if one spouse made significantly more money than the other spouse. Your Long Beach divorce attorney can explain alimony to you in detail, but here is a quick primer.


What is alimony?

Alimony is a court-ordered payment from one divorcing spouse to another. It usually only is awarded when one spouse cannot meet his or her financial needs after the divorce without help. Another determination is the other spouse’s ability to pay. Those factors and others, such as whether there was a prenuptial agreement negotiated by a Long Beach family law attorney, are taken into consideration in the decision to award alimony and how much.

Is alimony permanent?

A judge can order alimony payments to continue for the life of one or the other spouse, but such arrangements often are only temporary. For example, a judge may order alimony to be paid until children are grown or until the spouse has time to get back on his or her feet and find a job. Alimony agreements also often end if the spouse receiving the payments remarries.

If you are going through a divorce, you should consult with your family law attorney Long Beach Ca to see if you might be eligible to receive alimony from your former spouse.

Lawyer Up If You’ve Heard from the IRS

No one likes hearing about the Internal Revenue Service. In fact, most people don’t even like thinking about them. But the fact remains that the IRS is still there and they still have a job to do whether we like it or not. Nonetheless, it’s a good idea to immediately seek legal advice whenever you hear from them.

Most people are familiar with the IRS’s practice of auditing people when they believe some kind of evasion is at play. Whether they believe it’s intentional or not,  they will audit your taxes whenever they see an irregularity and especially if they believe it is resulting in unpaid taxes.

If you’re ever the subject of an IRS audit, you owe it to yourself to immediately contact help. An IRS audit attorney could be the difference between keeping your money and, in the worst case scenario, staying out of jail. Even if you’ve done nothing wrong and you’re sure of it, the right legal help can make things go a lot mother.

Another time it’s essential to have a qualified lawyer’s help when dealing with the IRS is if you’re taking part in the offshore voluntary disclosure program. No matter how well-intentioned your motives are, the IRS will eat you up if you don’t handle the process correctly. To stay on the right side of a jail wall, reach out to legal professionals first.
