Maintenance is a compulsory provision of one family member to another, consisting in the provision of means of subsistence and, if necessary, also educational measures. A claim for alimony, reduction, increase or termination may be brought before the Court in Los Angeles.
Alimony may be granted to a divorced spouse, children and relatives. Alimony may be demanded by a divorced spouse , who has not been found guilty of the breakdown of life and who is in need. The other spouse is then obliged to provide him, as far as his earning and financial resources are concerned, with means of living adequate to his justified needs. In the event that a divorce is pronounced due to the fault of only one spouse and causes a significant deterioration in the material situation of an innocent spouse, the court may order him to pay maintenance only from the spouse who is guilty. You may need to get in contact with a Los Angeles alimony attorney.
