CA laws are not that different when it comes to alimony. Yes, its a community property state, but you've not been out of work but 7 mos at the most, and you're able to work. The court will see that you've not truly lost anything financially except 7 mos worth of salary. You still have your condo, retirement, car, etc. Plus, whether he wanted you to or not, it *was* ultimately your choice to quit. No judge will compensate you for quitting your job after 7mos. Your contacts are pipe dreaming.
Get a couple of free consults with lawyers in your area if that will make you feel more comfortable, but I'll bet you that the $$ it will cost you to fight for alimony after a 7 mos marriage, will be MORE than any award you could get, and tie you to him longer than you want.
P.S. If pigs fly and the judge orders alimony? What makes you think he will actually PAY it? The courts can't make deadbeat parents pay child support, and alimony is a lower priority.
I'm sorry, but you have an incredibly weak case. Ask for your old job back and cut your losses.
Marriage doesn't come with a money-back guarantee.
