Termination of Alimony
Certain types of alimony may be terminated upon the payee cohabiting combined with the party they are living with providing support. The case of McMinn v. McMinn located here which was decided today illustrates the problems with proof in this area. The key issue was that a relationship combined with sexual activity does not rise to the level of support to terminate alimony. Absent some proof of the party they are living with providing monetary support, the alimony modification will be denied.
