Re: Scott Altman

Scott Altman was featured on the issue of alimony law in California. "One thing particular that I think is important is in the long term marriages, where you more likely have spousal support to order to go on for more than a few years, to ask why one of the spouses has better marketable skills than others," said Altman. "I wish the judges were directed to ask more pointedly, why does the recipient lack the job market skills, and to prefer the give longer warrant, when the reason is being out of the job market to care for children."
