Navigating the complexities of divorce can be challenging, especially when it comes to understanding financial obligations such as alimony. Known legally as spousal support in California, alimony is crucial in ensuring the financial stability of a spouse who may not have the earning capacity to support themselves post-divorce. Charles Green, a distinguished Los Angeles alimony attorney, brings over 26 years of expertise in family law and financial matters, offering unparalleled guidance and advocacy in these often-complicated cases.

What is Alimony?

Alimony, or spousal support, is a court-ordered payment from one spouse to another during or following a divorce. Its purpose is to correct any unfair economic effects of a divorce by providing ongoing income to the lower-earning spouse or the spouse who has been out of the workforce for a significant period. This financial support helps the receiving spouse maintain a standard of living similar to the marriage’s, at least until they can become self-sustaining.

Types of Spousal Support in California

California recognizes several types of spousal support, each tailored to different stages of the divorce process:

Temporary Alimony: This type of support is granted during the divorce proceedings. It is designed to maintain the lower-earning spouse’s living standard until the divorce is finalized.

Permanent Alimony: Contrary to its name, permanent alimony does not necessarily continue indefinitely. It is established post-divorce and considers long-term needs based on the duration of the marriage, age and health of the spouses, and other factors.

Rehabilitative Alimony: This form aims to support a spouse in becoming financially independent through retraining or obtaining education.

Reimbursement Alimony: Often awarded when one spouse has supported the other through educational or career advancements, this type is aimed at reimbursing those costs.

Alimony vs. Spousal Support: Is There a Difference?

In California, the terms alimony and spousal support are used interchangeably to describe payments made from one spouse to another. While the terminology can vary by state, in California they represent the same legal concept. Regardless of the term used, the intention is to balance the financial disparities arising from a divorce.
