Alimony or No Alimony
When an Ex spouse has moved into a residence with someone of the opposite sex for a long period of time, they may be considered as cohabitating. You may be rushing back to Family court to try and obtain a termination of spousal support.
Cohabitation for an extended time may be the basis of terminating or modifying spousal support post judgment where spousal support was awarded. It is not automatic, however.
Generally, when an alimony receiving spouse is proven to be cohabitating, it shifts the burden of proof to the spouse who is receiving support to determine whether in fact they need alimony.
