San Diego Spousal Support Attorney

At the Law Offices of Samuel S. Godkin & Associates, we will never underestimate the potential financial impact of your divorce.

A Divorce Lawyer Determined to Guard Your Financial Future

For honest, comprehensive divorce counsel and representation anywhere in San Diego County or throughout the South Bay, North County or East County areas, contact us and schedule an informative initial consultation with San Diego spousal support attorney Samuel S. Godkin. Practicing family law in California since 1996, Mr. Godkin is well equipped to advocate aggressively for you on contested divorce and spousal support matters.

Unlike child support orders, which are governed by fairly straightforward guidelines, orders for spousal support (once commonly called alimony) are often a source of intense dispute. Thorough preparation, skilled negotiation and — when the other party is irrational or inflexible — the willingness and ability to go all the way to trial can be critical.

Skilled Representation for Any Spousal Support Dispute

We have a network of qualified experts available to gather and analyze facts in your favor, and attorney Samuel S. Godkin has a track record of success in cases where spousal support is an issue. We can put our experience and resources to work in the effort to:

  • Maximize the amount and duration of spousal support you will receive if you are the financially disadvantaged party in your divorce
  • Avoid or minimize a spousal support order if your spouse contends payments are justified
  • Negotiate a property settlement or lump sum payment in lieu of spousal support if appropriate and in your best interests
  • Pursue a modification of your spousal support obligations when circumstances have significantly changed — affecting your former spouse's need for support or your ability to pay for support
  • Challenge a former spouse's request for a spousal support modification
