Spousal support basics in California (part 1)

When a couple has reached the end of a marriage, there are a number of financial matters they will need to address. One major issue is what Tustin residents commonly know as alimony, or what California law calls spousal support. There are some common misconceptions about spousal support, so we'll be taking some time this month to look at just what the California courts say about it. The discussion is intended as general information only, not specific legal advice.

What are the differences between divorce and legal separation?

As discussed previously on our blog, Tustin couples may find that separating and ending their marriage can be much more complicated when they own a business together. This is one scenario among many where it may make sense to consider legal separation as a temporary phase before moving ahead with a divorce.
