I live In Riverside, Ca. Can I request to stop paying spousal support if I recently lost my job?

texlawyer :

Good evening. I'll be assisting you with your question.

texlawyer :

After a judge orders one party to pay the other spousal support, that order can only be modified by the judge.

texlawyer :

An order of spousal support can be modified for several reasons. For example, if the spouse receiving the support no longer needs it or, as in your case, the spouse paying support has a significant change in income, the judge may modify the payment.

texlawyer :

You can find many of the forms you would need to ask for a modification here: http://www.courts.ca.gov/9143.htm#id9203
