Hello and thank you for choosing JustAnswer!What does the Divorce Decree/Order state specifically about paying off the truck?Have you paid the truck off completely?Can you tell me more about your situation such as what is your reason for stopping such payments?Once I have more information I will be glad to assist you further.Thank you,Robert
truck payoff date is 9-1-14. In the papers under spousal support is states husband shall continue to pay to wife spousal support in the amount of 500.00 per month until truck is pay off. She is getting married does that stop me paying her?
Thank you for your follow-up.Since the truck payments are considered spousal support then you can file a motion to modify the spousal support based upon the changed circumstances of her remarriage. You have a good chance of acquiring such a modification since spousal support is usually ordered to provide the marital standard of living beyond the marriage until the spouse can provide for him/herself.You can find instructions for modifying the spousal support ordered in the divorce settlement/decree by using the following link:http://www.ehow.com/how_5305449_amend-california-divorce-settlement.htmlYou may also find these next few links useful to understanding this process (there is valuable self-help information in the first link):http://www.courts.ca.gov/1038.htmhttp://www.menslegal.com/mens-rights-lawyers-san-diego-explaining-spousal-support -modification.htmlhttp://www.cadivorce.com/california-divorce-guide/spousal-support/spousal-support-modifications-and-termination/I hope this has helped. Please let me know if you need me to further clarify my answer and I will do my best to so clarify.Thank you,Robert
