Hello! My name is Debra (formerly known as Legal Ease). Thank you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.

If you and your spouse reconcile for over 90 days then support would end and you would need to fight to get it again if you separate again.

But there is a way around this and that is to have a cohabitation agreement which could say support would continue if you separate again.

Do you see what I mean?

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.

We don't have any type of agreement. We separate because he hit me when I confront him that he want it to cheat on me, and I call the police. So now he want to comeback with me, and I want to now what are my chooses. Could you explain me?

You don't get back together until you've seen a lawyer and have a cohabitation agreement drafted.
