  • Sex Crime

    “My son was facing serious felony molestation charges in Juvenile Court. We hired criminal defense attorney Daniel V. Cota to represent my son. It was a very long process, but Mr. Cota was with us throughout each step of the way. At the conclusion, my son avoided any time in custody and we were able to put this entire ordeal behind us. Thank you Mr. Cota for all of your help with my son’s case. We really appreciate it!”

    Spousal Support

    Once you marry somebody or constitute domestic partners, you each owe the other a mutual duty of support. Following the end of your cohabitation, however, the duty may end in some ways, but not completely. In other words, while the marriage is over, the duty for spousal support can continue. A West Covina family lawyer is available to discuss issues related to spousal support.

    When is Spousal Support Owed

    An important pre-requisite to the obligation owed for spousal support is “marital cohabitation”. This means that neither party owes a duty to the other spouse if they are living separate from each other. While this duty can be extended by contract between the parties following the end of marital cohabitation, this duty cannot be contracted away while marital cohabitation exists. For more information, reach out to a West Covina family lawyer.

    Court Order

    Following legal separation or dissolution of a marriage, a court is entitled to order one party to provide spousal support for the other spouse. The court may order “an amount, for a period of time, that the court determines is just and reasonable, based on the standard of living established during the marriage, taking into consideration the circumstances”. The propriety of such an award is judged by the circumstances of the parties and their respective standard of living during marriage and their respective needs and abilities to pay.
