I have been divorced for 24 years, the decree states that I have to pay alimony for life and it sez it is unmodifiable. It will only terminate on death or if she remarries (which of course means it will be modified under those circumstances). She has been living with the guy she ran off with 24 years and will never get married while I am alive.
She also gets half of my Law Enforcement Pension.
More info is needed. If wife remains in California, you need to speak with a California atty about modifying as that is where jurisdiction remains. And some courts will not enforce a nonmodifiable provision if it is unconscionable. If neither of you are in California, you would domesticate your Decree here. But before you do that, you need to speak with a family law attorney to determine what the circumstances are that would cause the decree to be modified. Generally cohabitation is not sufficient.
