Understanding Spousal Support in California

In the state of California, spousal support, also known as alimony, is designed to provide financial assistance to a lower-earning spouse after a divorce, helping them maintain a reasonable standard of living. The determination of spousal support is governed by a set of specific guidelines and factors outlined in California family law.

The nature and duration of spousal support can vary significantly based on several key considerations, such as:

  • The length of the marriage

  • The respective income and earning capacities of each spouse

  • The age and health of both parties

  • The Standard of living established during the marriage

  • The ability of the supported spouse to become self-supporting

  • Any history of domestic violence or other relevant factors
