Spousal Support in Culver City

Under California family law, a separating or divorcing party may ask for alimony or spousal support from the other spouse or partner. Spousal support is a means for one party to maintain their marital standard of living until the supported spouse can obtain employment or assets to support themselves.

Former spouses are generally encouraged to enter into marital agreements for spousal support on their own.

But, if the parties are unable to agree on the terms of spousal support, a party can ask the court for spousal support orders.

Various factors may be considered in determining the propriety and value of alimony.

These include:

  • The age and health of the parties
  • The duration or length of the marriage
  • The standard of living enjoyed by the spouses during their marriage
  • The education, health, and earning potential of the receiving spouse

Modifying Spousal Support

Support orders may be modified when one party can show that there has been a significant change in circumstances since the issuance of the support order. It’s important to inform your attorney immediately about any changes in your circumstances so that the appropriate application for support modification can be made. In the meantime, the paying party must continue to observe the terms of the approved support order until a new one is issued by the court.
