Factors Used to Determine Spousal Support

In California, the courts look at many factors to determine the amount and duration of alimony. Some of these factors include:

  • Each spouse's ability to maintain the marital standard of living
  • Contributions to each spouse's education
  • The supporting spouse's ability to pay support
  • Each party's assets and debts, including both marital and separate property
  • The length of the marriage
  • The employability of the spouse with primary custody of the children
  • Age and health of the parties
  • Tax consequences

Judges have vast discretion in determining whether it is appropriate to award spousal support. It is of vital importance that your lawyer is able to make a compelling argument to the judge on your behalf. We are able to do just that.

Avoid Surprises Through Mediation

One way to avoid the uncertainty of a judge's ruling is through the mediation process. Mediation allows the parties in a divorce to come together and try and find an agreement that is mutually acceptable to each party. We can serve as either mediators or attorneys. In our mediation practice, we work as a neutral party to help spouses understand the legal process and to arrive at workable solutions. In our roles as attorneys, we represent clients in either mediation or litigation, depending on the circumstances of each case.
