Cohabitation and Terminating Alimony in New Jersey

When an alimony obligation exists between ex-spouses in New Jersey, both the paying and receiving ex-spouses can wonder how a dating relationship of the receiving ex-spouse with a significant other can impact the paying ex-spouse's obligation to pay alimony. Typically, the dating relationship of the receiving ex-Tennessee-Alimony-Law2.jpgspouse is only going to alter the obligation of the paying ex-spouse if a situation called "cohabitation" exists. Broadly, cohabitation is defined as "a mutually supportive, intimate personal relationship in which a couple has undertaken duties and privileges that are commonly associated with marriage."

If a husband or wife bought a property prior to the marriage, that individual may think he or she is indisputably entitled to 100% of that property. However, in New Jersey, that is not necessarily the case, even if the party bought the house before the marriage or purchased it solely with his or her own money.

One of the more contentious issues in the case is Mrs. Stephenson's request for $400,000.00 per month in alimony. While this amount may seem shocking to some, divorce courts in most states, including Pennsylvania and New Jersey, have the discretion to order such an amount, depending on the facts and circumstances of the case.
