When does alimony end?
Amy Wechsler’s Answer:
Although limited duration alimony will have a set time frame, there are events and circumstances that terminate alimony earlier, such as the death of either party or the remarriage of the recipient. Alimony may also terminate, or it may be modified, based on substantial changes in the parties’ circumstances following divorce, such as when the payor suffers a permanent job loss or disability or retires, or when the person receiving alimony cohabits with another person. This is not a sure bet, however. Termination, or even reductions in alimony for any of these reasons will be based on many factors and an analysis of both parties’ circumstances.
