How Long Does Spousal Support Last in California?
The length of spousal support depends largely on the length of the marriage. In marriages that lasted less than ten years, spousal support will typically only last for half the length of the marriage itself. In marriages lasting longer than ten years, the court will not set an end date for spousal support. It must be proven at some point in the future that spousal support is not necessary for the support to be discontinued.
What Is Temporary Alimony in California?
California alimony laws do allow for temporary spousal support to be requested. This form of alimony offers short-term financial support to the spouse with a lower income, while the divorce is taking place. Temporary spousal support only lasts until a permanent order has been made. Similar to permanent spousal support, temporary alimony can also be modified.
