Thank you. Since there is a disparity in income it is possible that for a short period of time you may have to say support. I say this since you were only married for three years so it is possible a judge could order it. If they did I have provided a link below to a support calculator which you can use to get an idea of what you may need to pay to see if you offer is reasonable.https://cristinlowelaw.com/practice-areas/spousal-support/california-spousal-support-calculator/
