What is the name of your state? CA
Divorce was final in June, 2006. I was awarded my federal civil service pension, (I'm under CSRS) as my sole property. I have been paying spousal support since I'm still working, but plan to retire at the end of October, 2008. The court order says "Upon Respondent's retirement, his Civil Service retirement income will not be considered income available for spousal support purposes. However, petitioner may argue he has the ability to earn his previous salary until he reaches age 65." Question is could I subtract my pension from any income I earn through future employment after I retire to determine amount of spousal support or is there any other type of offset? My dread is having to return to court over this matter though naturally I'd like to avoid that. My ex and I aren't on speaking terms so there's no use contacting her to work something out.
