In California alimony or spousal maintenance/ support is an extremely important issue surrounding filing divorce. In your everyday San Diego alimony legal proceeding, the court will rule according to the source of income sustained during the marriage and how the other party will be impacted financially due to filing divorce in San Diego, CA. The judge will look into how the financial stability of the other party will be affected directly by filing divorce and if their quality of life or ability to support themselves financially is sufficient enough to warrant a spousal support payment.
This can be the case with business owners or spouses who provided most of the financial support throughout the marriage. Filing divorce is a life changing experience both financially and emotionally. The spousal support payment amount is set by the court once all the facts are examined requiring the divorcing spouse to pay a lump sum of dollars each month to the other party who will be negatively impacted by filing divorce.
