There are a number of factors that are taken into consideration when a family law judge in Lake County decides whether or not to award some spousal support in a divorce settlement. The length of the marriage, job outlook for each spouse and income, among other things may all be used in determining a person’s legal obligation to support their former spouse after a divorce.
Although their divorce has been settled for months, Paulina Rubio’s ex-husband is reportedly now trying to increase the amount of the monthly payments the singer and “X Factor” judge is required to pay him. According to reports, the former couple’s divorce settlement stipulated that Rubio would pay her ex alimony for three years in the amount of $6,750 per month. Rubio’s former husband purportedly claims in his recent court filing that she mislead him and the court as to her actual income.
Rubio’s former husband reportedly believes that she concealed certain information regarding her finances and income during their divorce negotiation. Among the information he suggests she hid are details regarding contracts she has with a show on Telemundo, as well as the specifics of her “X Factor” contract. He claims that because the amount he is to be receiving in alimony is based on inaccurate information, he is entitled to receive more.
It may be helpful for anyone who is negotiating a divorce settlement to obtain legal representation. A lawyer can look out for their interests and will help to ensure that their rights are upheld.
