What Is Temporary Spousal Support?
Temporary spousal support is spousal support ordered during the pendency
of the dissolution proceedings and before a final Judgment of Dissolution.
This is used to maintain the status quo of the marriage and is not based
on the length of the marriage.
The Court has wide discretion when awarding spousal support, however, for
temporary spousal support the San Diego Family Law Courts generally use
a guideline formula. Come in for an initial consultation where one of
our San Diego divorce attorneys can tell you the amount of temporary spousal
support you may be awarded or have to pay based on this guideline formula.
What Is Permanent Spousal Support?
Permanent spousal support is a spousal support order after a final Judgment
of Dissolution, which is based on the marital standard of living and the
length of the marriage. This is determined based on the totality of the
circumstances during the marriage and our San Diego family law attorneys
can discuss which factors the courts look to when making this determination.
Permanent spousal support is less predictable than temporary spousal support
as it is left to the wide discretion of the court. However, with over
200 years of collective
family law experience, our San Diego divorce lawyers are knowledgeable and can help
navigate the system to get the best result for you.
Spousal support is determined by the following factors:
- The duration of the marriage
- The petitioning spouse's contribution to the marriage
- The age of both spouses
- The financial situation of both spouses
