Hi, I have a general question about receiving alimony and it's tie to living arrangements. I'm recently divorced (1.5 years now) and I receive durational alimony set for 10 years which is slated as non-modifiable to me and my exhusband. In the past year, I've run into a lot of medical problems attached medical bills and now a possible conflict with not being able to meet my mortgage payments. So now I'm in a situation where I need to save by moving in with my parents until I can get back on my feet. I don't know how long it will be while I live there. I guess until things improve like getting a job and paying down debt. I've read online that it's okay if you're blood related and cohabitating, but I can't find any information about how long I can stay with them. I just need to know if my ex-husband can reduce or eliminate my alimony if me and my kids live with my parents. Again, not having a timeframe for a move out from my parents home.
