Yes, unless you waive it. California is a no fault jurisdiction and your leaving has no bearing on your legal rights.

The answer to your question depends upon several factors ie length of marriage, disparity in incomes, any domestic violence. Leaving is not generally one of the issues. It is based upon needs of the parties.

Spousal Support may be ordered if one spouse makes significantly more money than the other spouse makes (or is capable of making), regardless of sex, fault, or who chose to divorce.
