Customer: Hello. My name is Dave. I've been divorced since 2010 after 17 yrs of marriage
. I recently had a modification of alimony
that was settled though mediation
of OCT 2015, due to a substantial loss of annual income on my behalf. During the course of mediation, I wished to have cohabitation
listed as a reason to stop alimony, but she refused to agree to it and I went and settled anyway. Then, 2 months later, she became engaged to her boyfriend of 3 years and moved into his house last week. She is having a garage sale selling the items she had in her apt. I am trying to determine if I have grounds to take her back to court and have the alimony stopped. Through the course of their relationship, I know she has been receiving support from him through services. He is a part time mechanic and has repaired her car numerous times. He has also repaired our 2 daughters (both adults) cars on numerous occasions. My youngest daughter lives with them when she is not away at college. Last week he paid for 1500.00 of dental work for one of my daughters with a credit card. I suspect that they had planned the engagement
and cohabitation before the last modification was settled, but I can't prove that. Do you feel I have a good case to take her back to court and seek to have the alimony stopped?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: All alimony I've given her has been paid on time and there is no obligation for child support
because my daughters aged out. She will be receiving part of my pension and investments when I retire. she was residing in an apartment for a year prior to moving in with her fiancée.
