Unless there is a valid marriage contract to the contrary, the spouses joint own all assets earned by either spouse as community property. This includes the revenue from separately owned property, unless a document to the contrary is properly filed with the clerk of court.
In awarding temporary alimony, the court can also consider the standard of living during the marriage. The court cannot award alimony that constitutes more than one-third of the paying spouse's income. Modifications to an award of alimony can be made if either spouse's circumstances have substantially changed. This provision does not include the paying spouse's remarriage.
