One of the most disputed aspects during divorce is alimony. Alimony is the monthly or lump-sum payment that a higher-earning spouse is ordered to give to the lower-earning spouse. In California, spousal support orders are usually temporary, but in some cases they are permanent.

Our Long Beach alimony attorneys can help you work toward a solution that benefits both you and your spouse. Whether you are just looking into divorce or are already engaged in a complex dispute, our team can review your case for free.

Calculating Alimony in California

Divorce can change a lot of things. It is normal to be concerned about your financial future following a divorce. Alimony is meant to alleviate the hardship that the receiving spouse might otherwise face as he or she transitions to being single.

Of course, the spousal support award must be fair to the paying spouse as well. Generally, alimony awards should place each spouse on equal financial footing. How does a court determine the payment amount?

When calculating alimony, a judge may consider:

  • The health and age of each spouse
  • Each party’s income and ability to earn
  • The duration of the marriage
  • Each spouse’s needs based on the couple’s standard of living
  • The ability of the supporting spouse to pay alimony
  • Any history of domestic violence
  • The assets and debts of each party
  • Any contributions made to the other spouse during the marriage
  • The employability of the lower-earning spouse
