How is spousal support calculated in a North County divorce case? Unlike child support, where California has published specific guidelines and calculations, spousal support or “alimony” as it is often referred to is much more discretionary. This often leads to dispute and expensive litigation as the parties work to protect their interests during a divorce.
The spousal support page on our website comprehensively outlines California law on this subject. However, even a quick glance will tell you this area of family law is quite complex and based upon a broad range of factors that must be considered by the judge or magistrate in your case. Some of these factors include the length of your marriage, the economic and employment viability of each of the spouses, health and the standard of living the parties enjoyed during the marriage.
