Parsing Out The Legal Intricacies In Complex Child And Spousal Support Cases
Child support determinations in California are based on the parties’ income as well as their custody arrangement. Numerous factors can complicate this determination, including self-employment, fluctuating income, job changes and new financial constraints.
Spousal support (alimony) involves more nuanced considerations such as:
- The duration of the marriage
- The lifestyle established during the marriage
- The parties’ income, assets and other financial resources
- The parties’ ages, health and employment prospects
The court can take into account other case-specific factors to make a fair decision.
