Do Both Men and Women Have the Same Right to Support?

en español>

In California any person, male or female, may ask for spousal or partner support as part of a legal separation process.

There are two main factors that are considered:

  • Each person’s ability to work, and his or her potential earnings in light of his or her age, training and likelihood of employment.

  • The reasonable needs of each person, considering his or her age, health and lifestyle, subject to the other person’s ability to pay.
