Factors Considered When Determining Spousal Support

In the state of California, a number of factors will be used to determine a spousal support arrangement. If you and your spouse are on speaking terms and feel that you can amicably agree on terms yourself, you can work together to craft a spousal support arrangement that you both agree with.

If not, a judge will take these issues into consideration when making a final determination:

  • Length of the marriage
  • Each spouse's level of education and ability to work
  • Quality of living enjoyed by the couple
  • Each spouse’s contribution to the marriage - both financial and non-financial
  • Debts and financial obligations that each party is leaving the marriage with
  • Each spouse's health and age

The outcome of a spousal support case will vary from case to case. We recommend that you consult with our compassionate divorce attorneys if you have questions. We can help guide you through the steps of requesting alimony and fighting for the fair outcome you deserve.

Whether you need to file for spousal support or protect yourself from paying out more than is owed, we invite you to contact the Rancho Cucamonga divorce attorneys at James D. Madden& Aruna P. Rodrigo.
