How Is Spousal Support Determined?

In California, spousal support is determined after the careful review of many factors. In addition, the court itself holds a great deal of say in how spousal support is settled. It’s important to have an attorney on your side who can effectively advocate for your best interests in front of the court.

The court will consider the following, and more, when making their decision:

  • Standard of living during the marriage
  • Earning capacity of each party
  • Marketable skills and job market for supported party
  • Need for education for the supported party to acquire new skills
  • Ability of the supporting party to pay support
  • Needs of each party
  • Duration of the marriage
  • Age and health of each party
  • Criminal convictions of spousal abuse
  • Tax consequences to each party

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.
