Spousal Support

The court may order one spouse to pay the other an ordered amount of money each month when a couple separates or divorces.  The term used for this is called "spousal support."  It is also referred to as alimony.


Unlike child support, there is not a guideline calculator for determining spousal support.  The Court looks at a number of factors in determining whether support should be ordered.  As such spousal support requests can be complex. For additional information, see California Family Code section 4320-4325.
