There has been a discussion in the political field for some time about determining spouse support. The question is whether spousal support is still of this time and which term should apply for the alimony. Spouse maintenance time Currently, the partner maintenance period after the divorce is in principle 12 years. In marriages that have lasted less than five years and in which no children are born, an alimony duration equal to the duration of the marriage. Need maintenance contribution Partner maintenance only needs to be determined if there is also a need for a maintenance contribution. These cases you need a San Bernardino spousal support attorney.
For example, there may be a need for marriages in which children are born and have been consciously chosen that one of the spouses does not work or works less. Even if the spouses have a relatively large income difference, there may be a need. Needs calculation The need for maintenance can be determined by a needs calculation. This is based on the expenditure pattern of the ‘needy’ spouse at the time of the marriage. A rule of thumb is 60% of the net disposable household income (the family income after deducting the costs of the children) minus the income of the needy partner. The needs calculated in this way need to be substantiated in a procedure, see the requirements list. Load capacity calculation If the need is established, the question is whether the other spouse can actually meet the need.
