Good morning. I am sorry to hear about what you are going through. The ability to receive support, is going to be at the discretion of the Judge. The biggest issue which you are going to face and will need to overcome, is the length of the marriage and how short it was. When the judge makes his or her final spousal or partner support order, the judge must consider the factors in California Family Code section 4320.
These factors include:
Moreover, even if ordered, it is not likely that it would be for a period of time longer then the marriage.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
