Cohabitation and Alimony; but not defined in PSA


#1

How does it work of there was a property settlement agreement signed between 2 parties; and there is no cohabitation clause in the alimony section? The section defines the alimony ceases upon a set date, or upon the death or remarriage of the spouse…but not cohabitation. Can a person still get alimony in that case?


#2

I believe that alimony ceases when cohabitation begins, unless there is something that states otherwise in the agreement.
If your ex is living with someone else in a romantic relationship, then alimony can be stopped. If you have a court order, I am not sure of the process for that though…

If the agreement does not specify that co-habitation is terminating factor for alimony then the obligation will continue through the date in the agreement.
