Post separation support


#1

Dear drwilsontwo:

Greetings. The supporting spouse (aka you) can raise the issue of adultery and other acts of marital misconduct as a defense to paying post separation support. If she has admitted the affair, it is unlikely that you will pay post separation support. Best of luck.

If my wife had a lenghty affair and is finally admitting so, will I have to pay PSS? We have been married 6 years and I am suing her for Divorce from Bed and Board and her paramour for alienation of affection. I’m assuming alimony is a moot point but what about PSS? She is the dependent spouse.
Thanks.
