Spousal Support in Palmdale,California

Spousal support is the term used by the Court when ordering one spouse to pay money each month to the other spouse for the maintenance of their lifestyle. It is also commonly referred to as "alimony”. In California, the length of time that a person can be ordered to pay spousal support varies based on the length of the marriage, whether it is a “short” term marriage of under ten years or a “long” term marriage of over ten years. The parties “date of separation” determines the length of the marriage and with very recent case law changing how the Courts define the date of separation, it is crucial to seek the advice of an experienced family law attorney to guide you in this area, including understanding the difference between temporary and long term spousal support.
