Spousal Support Attorney in Granite Bay

What Does the Court Consider When Determining Spousal Support?

Determining spousal support is a key element of any divorce case. Depending on the length of the marriage and several other elements, the court will establish an amount of support that must be paid as well as a length of time that support must be paid. Our Granite Bay spousal support lawyers may be able to represent you as you seek to obtain spousal support, modify a current spousal support order, or enforce an order made by the court.

  • According to California state law, the court takes several factors into consideration when determining spousal support including:
  • The length the marriage or domestic partnership
  • The occurrence of domestic violence or abuse
  • The age of each party
  • The health of each party
  • Each person's standard of living
  • Each person's earning potential and education
  • The needs and best interests of any children involved
