Spousal Support

In California, the guidelines for child support are determined by formulas in the statutes. The court has a computer program which uses these formulas to correctly calculate the required child support. The level depends on a variety of factors, including the incomes of the parents and the percentage of time the child spends with each parent.

At the law offices of Ray Hassanlou , we help clients obtain the child support level which is appropriate for them, including:

  • Temporary child support orders
  • Permanent child support orders
  • Modifications to child support orders
  • Enforcement of child support orders California

How does a judge determine spousal support at the time of the trial?

At the trial of the dissolution, the California Family Code provides the judge with a long list of factors that are to be considered in determining the amount and duration of spousal support.

This list includes such factors as the length of the marriage, the parties’ prior living standard and to the extent to which the supported spouse contributed to the:

  • attainment of an education or professional license by the other spouse;
  • presence of young children in the home; and
  • employment opportunities available to the spouse requesting support
