San Diego Permanent Alimony Attorneys

When two people get married, they have a legal obligation to support each other financially. Even if a marriage ends, one spouse may still be bound by this legal commitment to financially support the other and may be obligated to make alimony payments. Some alimony payments are permanent and last indefinitely or until the supported spouse remarries or passes away.

If you or someone you know is seeking permanent alimony after a divorce or needs a modification to an existing permanent alimony arrangement, contact the San Diego permanent alimony lawyers of Fischer & Van Thiel, LLP, at (760) 757-6854 for a free consultation.

Factors Affecting Permanent Alimony

Permanent alimony arrangements are less common today than they were in the past. However, they may still be assigned if a couple has arranged for that type of alimony in a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement. In general, the longer a couple has been married, the more likely it is that permanent alimony will be awarded. The court may determine the value of the alimony payments depending on a range of factors, including:

  • Length of the marriage
  • How much each spouse currently earns or has the potential to earn after the divorce
  • Amount of property and debt received in the divorce settlement
  • Age and health of each spouse
  • The contribution each spouse has made to the other’s education or career

In many cases, one spouse leaves the marriage with significantly fewer job skills or earnings potential than the other, and therefore may need alimony payments for financial support, to return to school, or to overcome other obstacles.
