Asking on behalf of someone here. My friend has been married to his wife for a year in Bay Area now. However there relationship isn’t working out. They are both Indians. He wants to call it off and seek divorce. How much would he owe her in divorce and alimony? Does he have to pay his wife alimony perpetually? They are both Indians and got married in India. Now they both work in Bay Area.

- So the way I know it works is :- 50% of combined income gets divided.
If your friend has kids, then 1k/child upto 18 years of child.
If she waivers the alimony then no need to pay anything.
Is your friend in H1 and his wife on dependent visa ? If yes file in INDIA is cheaper
- Amazon echo $?Length of marriage doesn’t matter for community property unless it was annulled. For alimony it does matter: https://info.legalzoom.com/long-married-receive-spousal-support-26941.html
- New BazzingaaIf it was arranged marriage then probably his parents owe money to her parents and he is off the hook. ;)
