Factors Considered in Spousal Support Cases

Spousal support orders are issued once the court reviews a case and examines several factors. Santa Ana Spousal Support Lawyer Yolanda Torres works closely with clients to ensure accurate information is included for spousal support calculations. This information is taken into account by the court prior to the issuance of a spousal support order, and may include but is not limited to the following: How long the parties were married The age of the individuals Any disabilities or health-related issues which might affect earning ability Educational background Earning ability Lifestyle during the course of the marriage The supporting spouse’s ability to pay For short-term marriages, it is not uncommon for spousal support to be ordered for a time period equaling one-half the length of the marriage. For long-term marriages, spousal support may be ordered until the supported spouse remarries or dies. Prior to issuing an order for spousal support, the court will examine each party’s actual earnings in comparison to their earning ability. If there is a discrepancy, the court may find that the party is underemployed and issue orders based upon ability to earn rather than actual earnings. Spousal support orders are modifiable subject to showing a change in circumstances.

Santa Ana Spousal Support Attorney Yolanda Torres effectively handles these matters, even if she did not work on the case during the initial determination of support. Qualifying events which may necessitate a change of court orders may include the remarriage of a former spouse or a change of income.
