spousal support

divorced in california- no fault-in 1999. he was the petitioner- i want to know if i could go after his retirement, or after he dies go after his estate.

the petition reads this way regarding spousal support- the petitioner having not requested spousal support & the respondent having not requested spousal support the court terminates its juristiction to award spousal support to either party now or in the future, regardless of circumstances. To me, I consider this alimony- it says nothing about retirement earnings. We were married for 9 1/2 years, living together 2 1/2 before that. We are both Govt employees covered under the Civil Service Retirement System.
