The court may order monthly payments by one spouse to support the other spouse pending a divorce or legal separation. Formerly referred to as alimony, spousal support may continue after the conclusion of the divorce, depending on factors outlined in Section 4320 of the California Family Code. Spousal support is awarded in addition to any child support.
Either spouse may be ordered to pay spousal support to the other. For couples married less than ten years, the typical length of spousal support to be ordered is half the length of the marriage. In long-term marriages, permanent alimony can be awarded depending on the circumstances such as the spouse’s death or remarriage.
Our Los Angeles alimony lawyers can answer your questions and fully explain the complexities of temporary or permanent alimony, as well as post-decree modifications to support agreements / court orders.
