The purpose of alimony is to limit any unfair economic effects of a divorce by providing a continuing income to a non-wage-earning or lower-wage-earning spouse.
Alimony (spousal support) can be very challenging when you are going through a divorce. California has no guideline for alimony. The court has the discretion to award alimony to either spouse based on a variety of factors, including: actual income, marital standard of living, length of marriage, health issues, educational background, the capacity to earn, and the relative needs of each party.
