In the state of Utah how can your alimony get taken away?

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

Utah typically ends when either spouse dies or when the spouse receiving support remarries, unless the court order has a set end date.

Expert:  Lucy, Esq. replied 7 months ago.

However, if your income increases significantly such that you are able to support yourself, the other spouse could request that alimony end early. When that request is made, you're allowed to introduce evidence of increased expenses to show that you still need the money.

What about living withsomeone?
Expert:  Lucy, Esq. replied 7 months ago.

If you're living with a new partner in a romantic relationship, that will also end alimony. Support would end on the date you move in together, so if your spouse finds out later, he'll be able to request retroactive termination of support.
