Spousal Support

What is Spousal Support?

Spousal Support refers to the legal term used to describe financial support the court may order one spouse to pay the other in a Divorce of Legal Separation Case.

The court will look to a variety of factors before deterring a spousal support order. These factors differ in cases involving temporary or permanent support. Generally for temporary support orders, the court will make a limited determination that focuses on the respective incomes of each spouse, the financial need of the party requesting the support and the financial ability of the party being asked to pay spousal support.

For permanent spousal support orders, the court will consider a broader list of factors. Most of which can be found in C.A. Family Code Section 4320.

Child support depends on a number of different factors. Amongst other things, the court will consider the amount of money each parent makes and the time each parent spends with the child or children.
