DIVORCE In California

January 29th, 2008 at 09:44 am

Just so you all know, if you plan to divorce your husband because he ran off with another woman, gave her money, cheated on you before and you work more than he does, you owe him alimony in California.

He gets half of everything, even if he beats you up and scares you.

    I am not sure where you got that information unless you got it from your husband as a scare tatic so you don't leave him? It is true that California has the 50/50 policy but that is in the general divorce case.

    Abuse is serious and something not to be taken lightly. I live in California and divorced my first husband because of abuse. I got assistance using a DV agency and the divorce was quick to ensure my saftey. I did not owe him anything including alimony even though he did not have a paying job at that time.

    Remind me not to marry in California.

    California is ugly.

    It is more helpful in many regards than other states. BUT there are a lot of horror stories out there.

    This is what the lawyer told me - since i don't have proof of the abuse and never called the police.

    I should have taken pictures of bruising, but didn't, so now i pay.
