  • Court's Jurisdiction Over Spousal Support- how long for 3 year marriage? California

    Hi there,

    Facts: Marriage of 3 years, 2 months. Wife makes approx. $1200 a month/ Husband is unlocateable, possibly homeless and jobless (but staying with friends) and of questionable immigation status.

    The wife's petition did not terminate the court's jurisdiction for spousal support. The husband is in default. We are now having a difficult time getting the court to terminate jurisdiction for spousal support, as wife did not request it in the petition. Since husband is unlocateable, it is difficult to amend the petition.

    If the divorce gets finalized with the court reserving jurisdiction on the issue of spousal support, how long would it last?

    Thanks! Vgrazia
