Security for payments required of spouse--Receivership--Allowance withheld when
recipient's estate sufficient.
The court may require a spouse to give reasonable security for providing
maintenance, or making any payments required under the provisions of this chapter, and may enforce
the same by the appointment of a receiver, or by any other remedy applicable to the case. But when
a spouse has a separate estate sufficient to give that spouse proper support, the court in its discretion
may withhold any allowance to that spouse out of the separate property of the other spouse.
