family law 1008x670 1

Spousal support is a means to assure that, in a divorce, the spouse with the least amount of income will be compensated enough to allow a standard of living comparable to what they are accustomed to.

Some factors that will be considered in determining the amount of California spousal support to be paid are:

  • Length of the marriage
  • Age and health of both parties
  • Supported party’s marketable abilities
  • Amount of support contributed by supported party to career of supporting party
  • Standard of living created during marriage
  • Debts and resources of each party
  • Amount of the supported party’s earning capabilities reduced by time spent solely on domestic obligations
  • Supporting party’s earning power and ability to pay alimony
  • Capability of supported party to work without his/her employment disrupting the care of the children
  • History of domestic violence
  • Any adversities to either party that spousal support might create
