"I don't want to get divorced, but. . . ."

Most disagreements in California divorces concern child custody and support, spousal support or division of non-marital assets.

One of the questions most frequently asked by people in Sacramento contemplating a divorce is whether the court will order the payment of alimony. Some spouses believe that the court will order them to pay spousal support to the other spouse, and they want the amount set as low as possible.
