Spousal support can be one of the toughest topics of divorce

There are a variety of aspects involved in the process of ending a marriage. While the division of property and child custody can be two of the most vital topics to address, individuals who are going through a divorce in California may also find it helpful to consider the possible presence of spousal support. Since negotiations pertaining to alimony can be highly contested matters, knowing the factors to address concerning this aspect of divorce could be vital.

When it comes to spousal support, the length of the marriage may play a significant role in the determination process. How long the marriage lasted could have a substantial impact on the duration and amount of alimony payments. Another topic that may influence the outcome of the process pertains to the income of both parties, and whether one party left the work force to be a stay-at-home spouse or parent.

While alimony and child support may be separate matters, the presence of young children could also have an impact on the determination of spousal support. In some cases, the responsibilities of caring for young kids could disrupt one's ability to pursue employment. California state laws will also have a substantial influence on the process, but gaining an understanding of these laws can be a complex process.

Spousal support can be one of the most stressful and intimidating topics of divorce. Those who wish to gain a better understanding of the process of determining alimony could benefit from consulting with a family law attorney early on. An attorney can provide a client in California with guidance on every aspect of dissolving a marriage and subsequently assist him or her in pursuing the most favorable outcome possible during legal proceedings.
