What is spousal support?
As a California Spousal Support Attorney I spend a great deal of my time helping ex-spouses with alimony issues. The term spousal support and alimony are used synonymously. Spousal support is the assistance that an individual receives to help them maintain their standard of living. The amount of spousal support owed will be determined a family law judge. Many factors will be taken into consideration. For example, the income of both parties, and the ability for both parties to maintain their standard of living, without the other party.
The goal of spousal support is to assist the parties post divorce and facilitate a smooth transition. More specifically, spousal support aims to assist the parties in reaching the standard of living they were accustomed to during their marriage. Spousal support is put in place to protect individuals if their marriage dissolves.
Spousal support is significant because it helps individuals maintain the standard of living they are used to. It is important to keep in mind that if one of the parties has been out of work it would make a tremendous impact on them when they divorce, if spousal support is not granted. Additionally, spousal support is in place to allow an individual the opportunity to get back on their feet and obtain employment.
