Spousal Support

If the order for support stopped once she remarried then you would not have to begin paying it again. If she gets divorced again, I believe that support would be up to her new ex husband to provide…

Once alimony has been terminated it would not begin again even if she divorces.

I was paying spousal support up until the time my ex remarried which was less than 6 months after our divorce was final. That marriage now appears to be on the rocks after less than a year. Am I off the hook for good in terms of paying her support since she remarried, or if she gets divorced again is there some statute of limitations that could require me to start paying support again?
