San Fernando Valley Spousal Support and Family Law Attorneys
Spousal support, also called alimony, is a payment made to one spouse from the other to maintain the marital standard of living. A spousal support order can be temporary or permanent, and the the factors upon which the court makes its order is based on different criteria.
When one spouse earns more than the other, then a court may make a temporary spousal support order based on a mathematical computation that takes both parties’ respective incomes into consideration. So, for example, if one party did not work outside the home during the marriage, then he/she will likely be awarded temporary spousal support pending trial or a final resolution of the divorce.
