California Divorce FAQ

What is a divorce going to cost me? Can I afford it?

It depends on the number of children, assets, years of marriage, if there are allegations of domestic violence, and many other factors. No case is alike and there is no way of generating an average number.

Will I have to pay maintenance?

The word maintenance is not utilized in California. Maintenance is referred to as Spousal Support. Whether you have a right to spousal support depends on a number of factors including, but not limited to, your gross annual income, your spouse’s gross annual income, the number of children that you have, and the parenting time-share that has been ordered by the court.

Do the other issues – support, custody, spousal support, and property – have to be decided before the divorce is final?

Yes. Unless you agree to reserve jurisdiction over the particular matter (meaning you will deal with a certain item later in time). Child custody and child support always need to be addressed, however. Not finding the answer you are looking for? Browse our entire California Divorce FAQ.
