CALIFORNIA SPOUSAL SUPPORT
California spousal support is determined by the length of the marriage, the roles played in supporting each other during the marriage, the incomes of each spouse, and is based on a variety of financial and lifestyle factors. The Judge deciding the question of spousal support considers factors such as the earning capacity of both parties, the marketable skills of the party seeking spousal support, the marital standard of living, the future earning capacity due to periods of unemployment during the marriage, contributions made by the spouse toward the education of the other spouse, and the debts and financial assets of both parties. It takes expertise and experience to untangle such legal and financial intricacies while protecting your interests.
