What Does California Law Say About Spousal Support?

You might wonder how much spousal support you are responsible for paying or how much money you are entitled to. The purpose of support is to ensure both spouses maintain their financial status quo and help the lower-earning spouse maintain their standard of living. The amount of spousal support is based on several factors.

When determining spousal support, the court considers:

  • How long the couple has been married
  • The standard of living both spouses were accustomed to
  • How much the higher-earning spouse can support the other
  • The age and health of both spouses
  • What employment skills the lower-earning spouse has
  • How much hardship that support would cause each former spouse
  • The need to receive support
  • The ability to pay support
  • Documented History of Domestic Violence
  • Tax Implications of a Spousal Support order

Spousal support can generally be expected to last half of the length of the marriage for marriages under 10 years. If a marriage was longer than 10 years, the court may not set an end date for the alimony payment, but both spouses can request modification or termination at a later hearing. No matter how long your marriage lasted before one spouse filed for divorce, we aggressively advocate for your financial best interests.
