I have been divorced for over 16yrs and now my ex wife wants

This answer was rated:

I have been divorced for over 16yrs and now my ex wife wants to claim alimony even though she was married 4yrs after the divorce in Delaware. Can she do this?

Hello Robert,

My name isXXXXX a licensed attorney. Glad to try and help out.

Sure sorry for the circumstances, truly. My heart goes out to you.

Accordingly, I'm pleased to share the following good news with you. Alimony terminates upon remarriage (or cohabitation). Delaware Code § 1512(g). Even if that had not been the case, your former spouse has simply waited too long. Delaware Code § 1512(a). The botXXXXX XXXXXne is that, based upon your description, there's simply no valid basis to impose an alimony obligation against you.
If you have a follow-up question or need clarification, please just say the word by using "reply" to reach me.

I truly hope all works out for you.

Take care,

Ben, J.D.
