A spousal support order is by no means an automatic outcome when a California couple divorces. In fact, this is among the most intensely contested issues aside from child custody and visitation, with men and women frequently in conflict over whether spousal support is needed at all and, if so, what amount is fair and reasonable.
In fact, alimony/spousal support is often considerably more complicated than issues of custody and child support; while the court takes into account a variety of factors, including marriage length, sacrifices a spouse made, vocational ability and standards of living, there are no particular statutes that are set in stone that determine the final calculation.
