Thank you, Mark.IF MY EXWIFE SELLS THE HOUSE AND GETS A JOB. CAN I TAKE HER BACK TO COURT TO LOWER MY ALIMONY PAYMENTS SINCE THIS INCREASES HER INCOME?
The answer is yes
, you can.
You can modify alimony. Ca Fam §§ 3603 et seq
What you would have to show is that there has been a "substantial evidence of a material change of circumstances" and she now makes more money and no longer needs your support. Marriage of Lautsbaugh (1999) 72 Cal.App.4th 1131, 1133-1134, 85 Cal.Rptr.2d 688, 690
Then, the Judge has discretion whether to lower the amount or terminate it all together, based on her actual need and how much she is making at her job.
An attorney is recommended to file the pleading. Let me know if you need referral to low cost/pro bono leads in CA.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Good luck.
