Jun 3 34 Comments

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.

      What are 3 examples of financial differences? And what success criteria can be used to surpass them?

    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

      If you can find one that would actually agree to one.

      Length of marriage doesn’t matter. 1 min post marriage or 50 years it’s same.

      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

      Prenups only protect you for income and money earned till you got married, not after that.

      How would I get out of this? It's not that I want to break up but it's a possibility that can happen ten years down the line. So how would we save ourselves?

      H4 is void the moment they are divorced.

  • If it was arranged marriage then probably his parents owe money to her parents and he is off the hook. ;)

    As the old saying goes, it's cheaper to keep her.

    If they both work no alimony, one year of combined income simply split in half. If you can not agree get a lawyer might become expensive process. In general get a lawyer blind is a wrong place for advice in this area

    Unless the woman is highly motivated to get divorce, you have a very tough road ahead my friend.
