At the Law Office of Brenda McCune, California spousal support lawyer Brenda McCune is fully familiar with all aspects of spousal support. She helps our clients prepare the information needed by the judge in the case of spousal support.

Also called alimony or spousal maintenance, spousal support is not always awarded. The court takes many aspects into consideration when determining if spousal support is required after a divorce. We strive to help our clients understand the meaning of the term spousal support and how the courts view individuals seeking spousal support payments.

Spousal Support - Depends on Circumstances

The court does have discretion in setting the amount and length of spousal support. Each case is handled individually and depends on the marriage. The factors the court will consider include:

  • Length of the marriage
  • Education level of each spouse
  • Each spouse's earnings
  • Each spouse's abilities and disabilities
  • Any domestic violence

There are other factors the court may consider in addition to the ones listed above. However, these are the more common factors that judges examine when determining if spousal support is required for a spouse.

Spousal support may be awarded in addition to child support. However, child support is considered when determining spousal support.
