Termination of Alimony Upon Cohabitation
By Edward S. Snyder on May 08, 2013
The Appellate Division just issued an opinion that will change the alimony landscape in a case where an alimony recipient lives with someone in an attempt to avoid losing his/her alimony. In Reese v. Weis, the former wife joined households with her paramour and entered into an elaborate scheme for division of expenses. The appellate court saw through this and terminated alimony because the former wife and her paramour operated as a single household, they were committed to each other economically, devoted to each other emotionally, and faithful to their monogamous union. Previously, it was almost impossible to terminate alimony unless the former spouses had a specific clause in their agreement.
