1) Ex gets Alimony until death, new marriage, or if ordered by court; 2) she didn't work during marriage, but divorce papers clearly declare a "Gavron Warning" to both parties to obtain work and maintain income; 3) I do not know if EX has obtained work since divorce but hear she may have done so; 4) she's been getting Alimony now for about 3 years when divorce was final; 5) my retirement plan from government job of 30 years was split as mandated by court papers; 6) I am 55 and eligible to draw retirement now; 7) EX will receive her half when I retire, a figure that will be double that of the alimony amount; 8) I want to draw the retirement now and undertake a new job at approximately the same money; 9) My new income will be the sum of my retirement I receive plus the new job income .
1) What will happen to EX's alimony when she receives the retirement funds?; 2) Can I stop paying the alimony since the retirement funds will meet or exceed the alimony? 3) Since a Gavron Warning was stipulated, can this play any role at this point?
I want to take on this new job opportunity, but need to understand the financial impact this will have concerning the EX. Please advise. NOTE: This is in California
