Determining Spousal Support in a California Divorce
Spousal support may be determined based off a number of factors. You and your spouse may be able to come to a creative agreement on your own that addresses your unique needs and concerns, or the court may make a judgment in this regard if you cannot come to an agreement out of court.
In determining spousal support a judge will look at different issues:
- The length of the marriage;
- The quality of living both parties enjoyed during the marriage;
- Each party's contribution, monetary and non-monetary, to the marriage;
- Each party's income, earnings and assets;
- Any financial obligations of each party;
- The education and job skills of each spouse; and
- The age and health of both parties.
