How Is Spousal Support Decided?
The California family courts take into consideration a variety of different factors when trying to determine if, how much, and how often spousal support should be awarded in a divorce.
If your divorce is uncontested and both spouses are open to working together, support may be decided between them. This is often not the case, however.
- If a judge must make the spousal support decision, they will look at:
- How long a couple was married
- The age of each spouse
- The quality of living during the marriage
- Each spouse’s contribution to the marriage
- The earning potential of each spouse
- Each spouse’s employment or skills
These are just a few of the factors that the judge will review when trying to craft a spousal support order for a divorcing couple. They must also determine what type of spousal support should be ordered, such as temporary or permanent support. If you have questions or concerns regarding the alimony order, turn to Chung & Ignacio, LLP.
