(CBS/AP) It looks as if Maria Shriver will be getting spousal support after all.

Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has amended a divorce filing and withdrawn a request that a judge terminate Shriver's rights to spousal support.

The actor and former governor's filing replaces a document he submitted last week that also indicated he wanted Shriver to pay her own attorney's fees. The amended response filed Monday in Los Angeles states Schwarzenegger is also willing to pay his estranged wife's attorney.

The former couple's 13-year-old son remains hospitalized after a recent body-boarding accident left him with a collapsed lung, broken bones and broken ribs.

Shriver filed for divorce on July 1. Her petition to end the couple's 25-year-marriage came weeks after Schwarzenegger revealed he fathered a child with a member of his household staff years ago.

Schwarzenegger, who put his Hollywood comeback on hold in the spring to deal with his divorce, is ready to get back in front of the camera as the lead in a Western movie called "The Last Stand," which is to begin shooting this fall.
