Spousal Support


Although the application of spousal support laws change as financial conditions of both parties in marriage dissolution change, alimony is still an important consideration in many California divorces. For many people, it is a point of serious contention in their divorce, as one side often argues it is a financial necessity, and the other side argues that it is a financial burden.
