An ex-spouse has been given two Gavron warnings and made no effort to become self-sustaining. What is the chance of spousal support being terminated?
There isn't enough information here to answer your question. It depends on what your judgment says regarding the consequences, if any, of her failure to obtain employment; it may also depend on the length of your marriage. You should meet with an attorney and have that attorney review your judgment to determine what remedies are available to you for your former spouse's failure to get employment, or become self-supporting.
Garon's warning are pretty weak in terms of really getting somebody back to work. At next hearing, ask the judge to put her under a seek-work order. Some seek-work orders are really weak and easy for someone to scam there way out of. For example, some judges say "apply for no less then 10 jobs a month" and then the person can comply with this order by just emailing 10 jobs on craiglist. The better/stronger seek-work orders are a certain number of hours per week. like 40 hours a week, like you are probably working as least this many. Contra Costa Court has a super seek work order which you could ask your judge to emulate, copy, and/or at least use some things from. Here is the link to Contra Costa seek-work order : http://www.cc-courts.org/_data/n_0046/resources/live/famLaw06_SeekWorkOrder.pdf
I agree with the responding attorneys. Your next step should be to consult with a local attorney here in Los Angeles to examine the judgement and give you some advice as to how you should move forward.
