Author(s)Dan Nutter
First Page9
AbstractThe author's project here is to summarize the legislative history of interspousal support entitlements in California between the mid-19th Century and the effective date of the state?s current Family Code. By ?interspousal support entitlements? I refer to the support rights and obligations of California spouses between legal commencement of their marriage and commencement of legal termination-of-marriage proceedings.
