While the Garden State has few hard and fast rules regarding alimony, the length of the marriage and how dependent the supported spouse is will factor into an award. But now your former spouse has taken a big step in his or her new romantic relationship. If you need help modifying or terminating your alimony payments, please read on, then contact an experienced Bergen County, New Jersey alimony lawyer to learn if you still have to pay alimony if your ex gets remarried in New Jersey.
Does alimony terminate after an ex remarries in New Jersey?
Yes, once a former spouse gets remarried, the spouse who paid alimony can file a motion with the courts for termination of alimony.
How can a New Jersey divorce attorney help you modify or terminate alimony payments to an ex?
Whether your former spouse has remarried or is suspected of cohabitating with another person, a qualified legal representative from our firm will help you uncover the necessary evidence – in the form of joint leases or a letter from their landlord stating that they live at the address, joint utility bills, individual utility bills and letters addressed to both of them at the same address, et cetera – and present it to the court in order to modify or terminate your alimony payments. If your former spouse has developed a cohabitative relationship with someone else, he or she is no longer legally dependent upon you.
