Attorneys Helping With the Complications of Spousal Support

Temporary Spousal Support

The California courts' determination of temporary spousal support is similar to child support in that it starts with guidelines. These guidelines can be generous, and there is room for adjustments for special circumstances.

Permanent Spousal Support

In determining permanent spousal support in California, the court will consider factors like:

  • The length of the marriage
  • Respective incomes
  • Division of assets
  • Standard of living

In general, the court looks at these factors to maintain, as closely as possible, the same standard of living for each spouse that the couple enjoyed before the divorce. Attorneys from our firm can help protect your interests in permanent spousal support negotiations or litigation, helping you through all of the complicated considerations involved.
