Under California Law, spousal support differs from child support in that it is discretionary, and the Family Law Court does not automatically award spousal support. When making a determination as to whether or not spousal support should be awarded, the Court examines a wide variety of factors prior to issuing a spousal support judgment. The following factors are likely to be taken into account if spousal support is an issue in your case:

  • How long the parties were married
  • Each individual’s education, earning capacity, and work history
  • Each individual’s age & health
  • The lifestyle of the parties while living as a married couple
  • Each spouse’s contribution to the other’s education

Although the Court may award spousal support for short term (typically less than 10 years) marriages where appropriate, long term spousal support obligations are more likely to arise if the parties have been married for a significant amount of time. Spousal support orders may be modified at later date upon a showing of change in circumstances.
