I have been paying alimony for over 10 years now. Is there any way to end alimony other than my ex cohabitating or dying? I have another family with two children that I did not have prior to signing the alimony agreement. My current wife has lost her job and will be losing her unemployment in just a few weeks. I am providing for my current family of five plus paying alimony to previous spouse.


It depends on whether your alimony is modifiable, which should be stated in the agreement. If it’s modifiable, you would then need to look to your agreement for the legal provisions to determine what course of action you should take to modify it.
