Carlsbad Woman Avoids Paying Spousal Support With New State Law

Harris—who was attacked by her husband and asked to pay $25,000 in legal fees for the attorney representing her husband—avoided the demand because of a California law that "prevents a judge from ordering a spousal abuse victim to pay support to his or her attacker after divorce," according to the newspaper.
