How is spousal support calculated?

Spousal support, also referred to as alimony, is determined using the California Family Code Section 4320. Through this, the judge will consider many different factors, including:

  • The duration of the marriage or domestic relationship
  • The ability of the supporting party to pay spousal support
  • The immediate and specific tax consequences to each party
  • The needs of each party, based on the standard of living established during the marriage
  • The obligations and assets, including the separate property, of each party
  • The age and health of both parties
  • Any history of violence against the supporting party by the supported party
  • The criminal conviction of an abusive spouse

As you can see, there are many factors that go into the determination of spousal support. If you need help with your spousal support or alimony case, contact the Law Office of Torrence L. Howell to schedule your consultation.
