Spousal Support and Marital Standard of Living

What is spousal support or alimony?
Spousal support or alimony is the amount of support money that the court orders one spouse to pay another spouse each month after the marriage has ended. California courts call these payments spousal support, rather than the commonly used word of alimony (although they are the same thing). The purpose of these support payments are so that the support-receiving spouse can maintain the same standard of living that both spouses were accustomed to during the marriage.
