Spousal Support Lawyer in Beverly Hills
Under state law, judges are not required to automatically grant spousal support. It’s based on several different variables as set forth by both statutory and case law, and is handled on a case by case basis. The Court will take the following factors into account when deciding if spousal support is appropriate, and how much will be awarded. These factors include the following:
Ability to Earn
Health of Each Spouse
Age of Each Spouse
Length of the Marriage
Whether or not the parties entered into a Marital Agreement
How much one spouse supported the other’s education or training
Education level of each
Independent available sources of income for each
The standard of living during the marriage
When spousal support is awarded, the term will typically be decided based upon how long the couple was married. If the marriage lasted for more than 10 years, alimony / spousal is generally awarded until the recipient remarries or passes away. For marriages less than 10 years in duration, the court may either award support for half the term of the marriage to the total length of the marriage.
Alimony may be modified at any time if the individual seeking a modification of spousal support can prove that a change in circumstances has occurred to justify the modification.
