Spousal Support

California state law allows for an ex-husband or ex-wife to continue to be supported by the other spouse after the marriage has been dissolved. This is called alimony, spousal support, family support or maintenance. Originally, alimony was only collected by the ex-wife. However, today, either husband or wife can be required to financially support the other, depending upon the financial circumstances surrounding the details of their divorce settlement. The amount of maintenance that one spouse has to pay to the other is based upon several different factors, some of which are:

  • Duration of the marriage
  • Contribution of each spouse to the marriage (homemaking and child care are included)
  • Financial resources of each person
  • Physical and emotional condition of each party
  • Age of each party
  • Standard of living during the marriage

There are several different types of alimony in the state of California. We are extremely familiar with each type of spousal support, and we can help you to ensure that your rights are upheld in your case. With any divorce, there are many different factors that have to be arranged and often negotiated, in order to achieve agreement.
