Palo Alto Spousal Support Lawyer

Whether you are the primary wage earner or a non-working spouse, spousal support is of great concern as you face the divorce process. In California, any marriage lasting 10 years or more is deemed a long-term marriage, which affects the amount and duration of permanent alimony you will owe or to which you are entitled.

In California, permanent spousal support is based on 12 factors, some of which include:

  • Length of your marriage
  • Age and health of the parties
  • Marital standard of living
  • History of domestic violence between the parties
  • Skills and availability of jobs for the non-working spouse and imputed income
