Everyone going through a divorce needs to know how much they’ll pay or receive in spousal support. In California, we have temporary spousal support, which is when a court decides how much a party will temporarily pay. The court typically uses a program called the Dissomaster to calculate that amount. For a permanent spousal support order, the court must use the Family Code section 4320 factors. Those factors include the parties’ standard of living, ages, occupations, any instances of domestic violence, and more.
