Ventura Spousal Support Attorney

Spousal Support or Alimony in Divorce Cases

Divorces often leave spouses in a compromised situation, especially if the spouse was not working throughout the course of the marriage. Without much experience in the workplace it is very difficult for an individual to find gainful employment that would generate the income necessary to support the standard of living that individual was used to during marriage.

In order to ease the transition from a divorce, a spouse may seek out spousal support or alimony. If you are going through a divorce in Ventura, Thousand Oaks, or anywhere in Ventura County and you have legal issues regarding spousal support, then it is very important to speak to a Ventura divorce attorney at Negley Law, APC. Our goal is to make sure that your family's future is protected.

Call our office today at (805) 464-7315 and request your free consultation.

Factors that Determine Spousal Support

There are a number of factors that the court considers when determining the amount of spousal support an individual will have to pay.

These factors include:

  • The respective earning capacity of each individual
  • The marketable skills of the supported party and the market for these skills
  • The time it would take to learn marketable skills and the expenses associated with learning
  • The length of time the supported party was out of work due to the marriage
  • The length of the marriage (if it exceeded 10 years)
  • The standard of living established during the marriage
  • The assets and debts of both parties
  • The hardships faced by each party
