i am contesting a divorce in California. i am currently paying temporary spousal support 1450. from this month i am doing a second job apart from my 8 hours job to pay alimony, attorney fee and clear the financial mess my wife created by not sharing any of the community expenses before leaving. my spouse attorney targets my second job income and asks 40% from that also. in Massachusetts law , after first temporary spousal support is ordered, if husband begins to earn more, then its not calculated for spousal support. alimony is given to maintain the same status during the marriage. why wife should get more out of the extra hard work the husband does? any difference between temporary spousal support and alimony? please tell me if i can get a waiver from court not to include second job?
