DearCustomer- The divorce decree should have the terms of the spousal support written in the agreement. I have never seen a decree that says it will just be paid with no ending date unless it is for life which I doubt in the case of a ten year marriage. If you want the terms of the decree to be changed the only way is to go to court and move that the original order be amended.
Obviously if the decree is clear as to and ending date of support then that should answer your question as to when he will be able to stop paying.
