Claiming Spousal Support in Newport Beach
When couples contemplate divorce, spousal support is a common legal concern during the dissolution proceedings. Spousal support, also known as ‘alimony’, can be temporary or permanent.
Temporary spousal support aims to maintain the living standards of both parties until a permanent support order is determined and properties and obligations between the spouses are distributed.
Permanent spousal support seeks to provide a divorcing spouse with basic needs and a consistent lifestyle after divorce.
Factors in Spousal Support
Duration of marriage: A marriage that lasts for 10 years or more are referred to as a long-term marriage which may be a significant factor in claiming permanent spousal support. Short-term marriages generally lead to spousal support for a period lasting half the term of the marriage.
Other factors that a judge may consider in determining the award for support include:
- Earning capacity of the paying party
- Needs of each party based on the living standards during the marriage
- Obligations and assets of each party
- Marketable skills of the supported party
- Age and health of the parties
- History of domestic violence between the parties
