Answering Your Questions About Support Maintenance in California

In some marriages, one spouse serves as the main “breadwinner” while the other is committed to caring for the home and/or children. In a divorce, the spouse who forfeited a career to care for the home may find himself / herself at a financial disadvantage. In these cases, spousal support may be granted.

Divorce proceedings can take a long time. The court may order temporary spousal support until the divorce order can be finalized. Factors in determining spousal support include income, standard of living, and each spouse’s ability to earn a living. The court does not favor wives over husbands or vice versa in granting spousal support orders.

How Is Spousal Support Calculated in California?

The court considers many factors when determining alimony California, including:

  • Hardships
  • Age of each party
  • Tax consequences
  • Length of marriage
  • Health of each party
  • Any criminal conviction
  • Marketable skills of each party
  • Any history of domestic violence
  • Each party’s debts and assets, including separate property
