Spousal Support / Alimony
Pasadena Spousal Support / Alimony Mediator
Spousal support is possibly one of the most contested areas in a divorce proceeding. The court has broad discretion in awarding or denying spousal support based on a number of factors. An experienced family law mediator can help you keep control in your hands, not the court's, by working with your spouse to find an amicable solution you both appreciate.
Pasadena Mediator Mark B. Baer has been practicing family law in the greater Los Angeles area since 1991. He works tirelessly to reach a favorable outcome for his clients in every case. His experience in spousal support cases allows him to work efficiently on your behalf and find solutions that consider both your short- and long-term needs.
Experience That Gets Results
Mr. Baer is familiar with the criteria that the courts use to make spousal support decisions and the judges who make them. His knowledge of the law and his experience gives him keen insight into these types of cases. He is a skilled negotiator who knows how to build a case that supports your position while also appeasing both your spouse and the court that will eventually need to sign off on your agreement.
Some of the criteria the courts use in making spousal support decisions include:
- The length of the marriage

- Earning capacity of each spouse
- Standard of living
