What can I do if there is there was no GAVRON WARNING on my divorce? 10 Answers as of February 14, 2013

Married on 1981 of October, and on 2001 we got divorced. Been paying my ex support for over 10 years now. When is this going to stop or ends? Back then she is not working and now she is employed and with full benefits. Upon looking on my issue at internet, I found that there is no such thing as lifetime support for my ex. What can I do to get this?
