Hello Divorce attorneys will help you calculate child support and spousal support for you using the program that judges use across the state of California for your final divorce Judgement & Agreement, or for temporary support while your case is pending. This calculation is required by California if you have children together with your spouse.
Temporary support is provided while dissolution or legal separation proceedings are pending. If the parties were married or domestic partners, this triggers the right to ask for temporary spousal support. If the parties were unmarried or not registered domestic partners, they cannot ask for spousal support in family court. In the area of spousal support, there is a lot of judicial discretion. This means once your judicial officer hears your case, they can order support based on facts and circumstances. Spousal support is triggered by one party making a motion asking for it.
