I am sorry to hear about this situation. In CA, alimony may be "revisited" if there is a SUBSTANTIAL CHANGE. Specifically giving up lawful residence by itself is stated, but this does work to one's advantage.
First, see here
. Scroll down to "Modification Of Spousal Support Orders" and "Termination Of Spousal Support Orders."
EITHER/BOTH may be argued in a petition to MODIFY alimony, and hopefully the Court would simply drop it. Also, since she is in UK, she may be at a disadvantage to appear in court, making this much more probable that the Court would rule in one's favor.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Gentle Reminder: Use the SEND
