Hello!! It depends on how your court order is written, but yes generally, spousal support terminates upon the supported party remarrying. You cannot usually get back paid spousal support back, because you found out that they were married, but you should file and then ask for it to be retroactive to the date of filing.
yes i am ready.
I responded did you not get the answer?
i just had the chance to read it. just one clarification:
what if supporting party is the one that gets married?
then no you have to continue to pay the support, it has to be the supported party that remarries
a new spouses income generally has no effect on spousal support payment either
