My divorce was finalized in 1997 in California. The matter of spousal support was left open. Can I ask for it now in 2020?

More information is required to best answer this question. However, it should be noted that spousal support is predicated upon a number of factors: length of the marriage, age of the parties, health history , earning capacity, and standard of living during the course of the marriage. If you have a significantly long marriage and suffered a financial reversal to justify support, that relief may be available. Please speak with an experienced family law attorney to explore your legal options.
