Under California’s spousal support statute, an individual has a duty to support his or her spouse financially. To determine the amount of spousal support, courts must consider a variety of factors including but not limited to: the length of the marriage, the needs of each spouse based upon the standard of living established during the marriage, the education, skills and training of each spouse, the age and health of each spouse, each spouse’s income and earning capacity, the and the immediate and future tax consequences of spousal support to each spouse.
Spousal support is often the most contentious issue in a divorce case, and requires a firm grounding in personal and family finances, as well as the ability to understand financial documentation, including earnings statements, financial institution and investment statements and income tax returns.
The firm’s attorneys and staff are well-versed and experienced in finding and understanding financial and income documentation, as well as developing personal financial statements to be used in determining spousal support.
