Question
Hello!
I am slightly confused about a section on form FL-180 (regarding a dissolution in California).
Can you please explain what section 4.1 is attempting to illustrate when stated like this:
4.l. Spousal, domestic partner, or family support is ordered.
(1) Reserved for future determination as related to: respondent
(2) Jurisdiction terminated to order spousal or partner support to: petitioner

There was no children involved in this marriage.
Any help with this would be appreciated!

Thank you

I am not familar with CA Law, however I maybe able to help.  

1. This basically leaves the case open for respondent, maybe related to spousal support
in another county, not sure.

2. In the county where this case was heard, the respondent has been ordered to terminate
spousal support to petitioner.

This looks like the case was heard in the wrong county, and case is left open until the case is reassigned to another county.

I COULD BE COMPLETELY WRONG SO SEE AN ATTORNEY FOR EXACTLY WHAT IT MEANS.

Hope this helps,
Jeff
