Spousal Support In Divorce

How Is Spousal Support Calculated?

Spousal support (frequently referred to as alimony) payments are calculated and determined by the courts based on a number of different factors, which could include:

  • Length of the marriage
  • Age of the spouses
  • Health of the spouse
  • Earning capacity of each spouse
  • Children and child support issues

Support could be awarded for an interim time period or a long-term period, depending on what the courts decide. Our California lawyers have extensive experience handling spousal support issues in divorce. There may also be situations where support modifications are necessary. At All American Law, we can also help in this situation.
