Are divorced parties ever awarded alimony by California courts?

Alimony is the payment of money from one former spouse to the other after a divorce.

A judge may make determinations on how the couple's property will be divided, children will be cared for, and support will be paid. When all relevant issues are finalized the couple may break into two single individuals.
