Spousal support, unlike Child Support
, does not have Guidelines which are in place to make determinations for alimony
It works this way - It is based on need and ability to pay.
Generally, someone who has been married 11 years or longer will get some type of support.
In your case, since you are educated and have a means to support yourself and because your marriage was not at 11 years, your support will be very minimal, if at all, unfortunately.
You can read the CA Law here
to see exactly what I am saying and what criteria is used to determine support.
Also, Support comes in many forms - there is temporary support to allow someone to get on their feet. There is permanent support which is general granted to stay at home parents after 25 or so years and there is rehabilitative support this is granted when a party has no skills or education and needs to go to school to get a trade of some sort to survive
