Spousal Support

Spousal Support, or alimony, in California is generally intended to provide that each spouse be able, as near as possible, the life style that existed during the marriage. Temporary spousal support may be granted while a case is pending where there is a substantial discrepancy in income or where one spouse is unemployed. The Family Law Court will depend on wide variety of circumstance to determine what the amount of spousal support will be.

The court does have some discretion when interpreting the situation. However, this is no place for any emotional appeals. The Family Law Court in California is primarily concerned with achieving what the state considers an equitable division of your assets, providing for the care of minor children, and if deemed necessary, those of a spouse. What matters most is preparation in documenting the items stipulated by California family law, their proper presentation to the court and anticipating any challenges that may arise.
