Only a court can grant an absolute divorce; you or your spouse will need to file a divorce action. The cohabitation will not affect child support, but it may be a change in circumstances on the basis of which custody could be modified. Cohabitation in itself may not be sufficient to change custody; you will have to show that it affects the child’s best interests.
