Our Danville Spousal Support Attorneys Can Help

There is no simple formula for calculating post-divorce alimony in California. There are factors and statutory guidelines for judges to consider; however, the court has broad discretion in how much support, if any, to award. That is why it is crucial to have an experienced spousal support attorney from Moradi Saslaw to present your case and any supporting evidence to the court.

  • Thoroughly review your family’s finances to uncover hidden assets;
  • Retain needed experts to value complex assets;
  • Ensure your spousal support agreement is fair and reasonable; or
  • Litigate your spousal support issue before the court.

Spousal Support Payments in California

In California, a couple may either agree on the number of spousal support payments and their duration, or the court may set up payments on their behalf.

In determining spousal support, the court will take into account the length of the marriage as well as:

  • The age and health of each spouse;
  • The needs of each person based on the standard of living enjoyed during the marriage;
  • Whether there are allegations of domestic violence;
  • The assets and debts of each person;
  • What each person can afford to pay to maintain the standard of living enjoyed during the marriage;
  • The contributions of one spouse to the other spouse in obtaining training, education, or a professional license;
  • The state and federal tax implications of spousal support;
  • Whether getting a job would make it too difficult for a parent to care for the couple’s children;
  • Whether one spouse’s career was impacted by the need to take care of the couple’s children or home or was affected by unemployment;
  • The marketable skill set and the job market for those skills of the spouse that is receiving spousal support payments;
  • The time and expense a spouse will need to obtain training and education to secure employment; and
  • Any other factors the judge deems relevant to spousal support.

Modifications of Spousal Support

If there is a change in circumstances that warrants modification of spousal support payments, either spouse may file for a modification with the court.

A change in circumstances may include the following:

  • A disability or severe illness;
  • Unemployment;
  • A permanent decrease in income; and
  • Cohabitation with a partner by the person receiving support payments.
