Understanding the Factors That May Impact a Spousal Support Award

In California, many different factors determine if support will be granted in a particular case. Although the spousal duty to provide spousal support ends upon divorce, the courts have recognized that a continued duty to provide post-divorce financial support to a former spouse is necessary if they lack the financial means of living at the marital standard of living after separating.

The factors courts must consider when determining spousal support issues include:

  • The length of the marriage
  • The earning potential of each spouse
  • The age of the parties and the ability to work
  • The career opportunities turned down for the sake of the marriage
  • Any education or training necessary for one spouse to be able to re-enter the workforce

The amount and duration of the support are left to the court's discretion as well. This makes it extremely important to have an attorney who understands the spousal support laws on your side to ensure that you are making a compelling argument to the court that demonstrates why your specific requests should be approved.

Our attorneys have handled a number of these cases on each side of the issue, and have worked with financial experts who know how to get a complete picture of a couple's assets and debts. We have a comprehensive strategy in place from the beginning of your divorce that takes support into consideration, so you can get the help you need, no matter which objective you are pursuing.
