My fiance is currently paying alimony to his ex-wife, even though she’s been living with her boyfriend for over six months now. It’s my understanding that cohabitation is grounds for termination of alimony. Is that true? Their divorce was settled out of court, and their contract does not mention anything about future cohabitation with others.
In addition, the alimony agreed to during the divorce settlement is now putting my fiance (and me) in a financially challenging situation. She gets half of his paycheck and a newer, fully paid-off car, while he’s stuck paying a promissory note and legal fees associated with the sale of their house (which resulted in a short sale), and drives a beat up old car that’s going to break down any day. At the very least, can he re-negotiate the amount of alimony?
What should my fiance do?
