In your case, having a live-in boyfriend is not going to risk your alimony automatically. However, keep in mind, the court can choose to reduce or eliminate alimony because of your circumstances. What may happen is that your former spouse may go to the court and request a modification of the alimony because you are now living with somebody that is now bringing in income. It will ultimately be up to the courts whether they decide to reduce the alimony, but if you can show that his income is not going to impact your standard of living significantly, then the court may decide to do nothing. It really just depends first on whether your former spouse is going to take any action on it and it also depends on whether the court agrees with him.
