The Ex-Wife of a Man who won $273 million asks if she can stop paying her ex-husband alimony. She said, "To him, [the alimony] is pocket change at this point."
You may be paying your ex-husband alimony (spousal support). But, spousal support in California is based on need. Therefore, you do not need to continue paying your ex-husband the same amount of support if he earns more money now or is able to earn more. The court will also look at your ex-husband's earning potential to determine how much support to award him.
