How is alimony terminated?

An alimony order automatically terminates upon the remarriage or death of the recipient. The court may also terminate an alimony order if the recipient cohabits with another person after the order for alimony is issued. In such a case, the paying party must file a motion with the court and produce evidence of cohabitation. There is a time limit for filing a motion to terminate alimony for cohabitation. The motion must be filed no later than one year from the day on which the paying party knew or should have known that the former spouse has cohabited with another person. An important point is that the party asking the court to terminate alimony does not need to prove that the former spouse was cohabiting on the date they file their motion to terminate.
