Description

Spousal support; termination upon payor's retirement. Provides that, for spousal support orders filed on or after July 1, 2017, any periodic payments awarded shall terminate upon the payor spouse's attainment of full retirement age. The bill provides that the court may set a later date for termination of such payments for good cause shown. The bill also requires a court to order the modification of an initial support order filed before July 1, 2017, so that support terminates upon the payor spouse's attainment of full retirement age, unless good cause is shown to deny the petition for modification. Amends § 20-107.1, § 20-109, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
