sco44,

perhaps you may. It is hard to comment without knowing more facts such as the reason why she may quit. ie: due to disability, or deliberately.

Hi sco44,

Say your ex is unemployed simply because she hasn't looked for a new job in the city she is has moved to. In a case like this, you likely would not have to pay more spousal support. This is because your ex would be expected, based on her skills and education, to maintain employment (depending on the circumstances surrounding your case). Generally, support recipient cannot simply quit the job they have had for so many years and expect more pousal support to make up for their loss of income. Support receipients who are intentionally underemployed/unemployed for no good reason usually have an income imputed to them by the court.

However, like LV says, if she is unemployed for some special reason, such as disability, this changes things. So, please note that my comments are very general and may not apply to your particular situation.

Lindsay
