How Is Spousal Support Determined in California?

In contrast to child support, spousal support is based on need, rather than on state guidelines. Factors that are taken into account include:

  • The age and health of both spouses
  • The standard of living established during the marriage
  • The status of the person who has custody of any minor children
  • Whether either party worked during the marriage
  • And more

This is where the assistance of a spousal support attorney in San Francisco can be critical to ensuring all facts are uncovered during any proceedings.

Spousal Support for Long-Term Marriages in California

A stack of hundred dollar bills with a note that says "alimony" on it, tied together with a rubber band.In addition, other factors can determine the length of spousal support, such as whether a marriage was long-term or short-term. In California, marriages of 10 years or more are considered to be long-term marriages, and spousal support can be set without an end date. On the other hand, shorter marriages have limits placed on spousal support, usually around half the length of the marriage.

Above all, the need has to be established before support is granted. Remember, a skilled spousal attorney, such as the trusted professionals at Fenchel Family Law PC, can help ensure that your case is presented fairly and factually.
