July 2017 Newsletter

NewsletterJuly 1, 2017 by Jaurigue Law Group

We've MOVED! Effective Monday, June 26, 2017, the Jaurigue Law Group relocated its Glendale office to 300 West Glenoaks Boulevard, Suite 300, Glendale, California 91202. Our phone numbers, facsimile number, website, and email addresses remain the same.

Moving can be tough, but the JLG Team was up for the challenge. We were able to become fully operational in a beautiful, newly renovated space in a matter of less than 48 hours. If you've ever moved, especially an office, you know how difficult the logistics of moving can be. But, as with the issues our clients face-whether in court, in a business deal, or with the opposing side-we spotted all of the potential issues ahead of time, planned out our strategy, implemented our plan, and worked hard for a successful outcome.

We hope you will get an opportunity to visit our new office soon. Feel free to call us to set up an appointment

Thank you,


Abigail Zelenski

Ostler-Smith Support Orders

California has a guideline formula to determine child support and spousal support in divorce cases found in California Family Code section 4055.

When a parent/spouse has fluctuating income due to bonuses, commissions, and overtime, many Courts elect to use the Ostler-Smith bonus order based on the case, In Re Marriage of Ostler v. Smith, 223 Cal.App.3d 33 (1990). The parties have one support order which contains a floor amount that the payor will always earn and a separate order that governs the amount of support taken out of bonuses, commissions, and overtime.
