Although no longer referred to as alimony, spousal support may still become part of a divorce settlement or judgment handed down by California family court judges. When deciding whether spousal support should be required, the judge will take many things into consideration, including the income of the parties, child support obligations, and living arrangement of both spouses. Although California is a no-fault divorce state, judges may even take into consideration whether one party had a significant role that led to the divorce.
