Finances seem to be an issue for just about everyone — especially if you are going from a married lifestyle to a single one. Establishing a new home and starting over after a marriage requires money. If you have been a stay-at-home parent, you may find yourself suddenly back in the workforce and not making the income you did before you had children.
At Camarata & Fuller, LLP, we understand that there are cases where spousal support – also known as alimony – is needed after a dissolution. Whether it is a five-year period while you get back on your feet or permanent maintenance based on a long-term marriage, we will work to ensure that you have the means to move onto your new life.
How Is Spousal Support Determined?
The primary purpose of alimony is to avoid unfair economic impacts due to a divorce. A spouse in California who was married fewer than 10 years generally can expect alimony for no more than half of the length of the marriage. Those married more than 10 years will receive an indefinite support order, though indefinite does not necessarily mean permanent.
When determining alimony payments, the court may consider factors such as:
- Each partner’s age, health, and financial condition
- Job skills and income of the recipient
- The needs of the recipient in maintaining the standard of living they enjoyed while married
- Recipient’s career training or further education
Whether you are fighting to avoid or to receive spousal support, the Temecula alimony attorneys at Camarata & Fuller are ready to represent you in court. By taking the time to get to know you and understand your goals, we are able to offer personalized and effective legal support.
