Future income and alimony

Married 22 years. I’m 53. Wife is 46. Wife is stay at home but our kids are grown. I’m working now but I can retire now at 48K annually.

If I move and get another job after divorce, will that new income become part of the final alimony payments?

In California, except by agreement, the legal standard for retirement age is 65. That means that if you elect early retirement and deliberately decrease your income in doing so, your spouse can “impute” (attribute) your prior earning standard to you for purposes of determining the correct amount of alimony.
