Helping You Achieve the Spousal Support Order You Need
Also referred to as alimony, spousal support is a payment that an independent
spouse makes to a dependent spouse after divorcing or legally separating
in order to maintain the same standard of living that was enjoyed during
the marriage. In the past, spousal support payments were typically made
by ex-husbands, the court will now order the party who is more financially
independent to make these payments.

How is Spousal Support Determined?
When deciding spousal support in California, there are numerous factors
a judge will examine when determining spousal support.
Below are some of the factors that are commonly considered in such cases:
- The age, health, and financial state of each spouse
- Each spouse’s earning capabilities
- The duration of the marriage
- The standard of living throughout the marriage
- The ability of the supporting spouse to also support himself or herself
Additionally, unlike child support, enforcing a spousal support order is
often more challenging. To enforce a spousal support order, the receiving
spouse would have to take the paying spouse to court for a contempt proceeding,
which would require more time and result in legal fees. If your spouse
is refusing to make alimony payments, hire a spousal support attorney
as soon as possible.
If you are unable to continue to make your spousal support payments, hire
an attorney to file for a modification or your support order. Whatever
you do, you should not stop making your support payments. You will still
be responsible for all of your missed payments.
