Can I stop paying spousal support to my ex, or can I at least pay less, after I retire?
Dear Senior Legal Line:
I have been divorced for several years. I have been paying spousal support to my ex since the divorce. My divorce decree does not have an end date for support - it says I am supposed to keep paying unless my ex dies or gets remarried. But I plan to retire soon and my income will go down. Can I stop paying support to my ex, or can I at least pay less? I don’t think I will be able to afford to pay my ex after I retire.
