HOW SPOUSAL SUPPORT WORKS IN CALIFORNIA
There are many factors that decide the length, the amount, and the overall ruling of Spousal Support, or alimony, in California. This state doesn’t have a set duration period for marriages longer than 10 years.

However, the alimony will last for half the amount time married if shorter than 10 years.
