915.  (a) For the purpose of this part, a child or spousal support
obligation of a married person that does not arise out of the
marriage shall be treated as a debt incurred before marriage,
regardless of whether a court order for support is made or modified
before or during marriage and regardless of whether any installment
payment on the obligation accrues before or during marriage.
   (b) If property in the community estate is applied to the
satisfaction of a child or spousal support obligation of a married
person that does not arise out of the marriage, at a time when
nonexempt separate income of the person is available but is not
applied to the satisfaction of the obligation, the community estate
is entitled to reimbursement from the person in the amount of the
separate income, not exceeding the property in the community estate
so applied.
   (c) Nothing in this section limits the matters a court may take
into consideration in determining or modifying the amount of a
support order, including, but not limited to, the earnings of the
spouses of the parties.
