What impact does cohabitation have on spousal support payments?

It's not uncommon for divorced spouses to decide to get back in the dating game again in the months and years after their marriage comes to an end. While those couples may not be at the point where they're interested in walking back down the aisle once again, they may desire to share a home with their significant other. What many don't know is that doing so can impact the amount of alimony that they receive.

Using spousal support payments smartly

Did you recently get divorced in San Jose? If so, you likely aren't ready to move into a home by yourself. Divorce can cause a shock to your system to the point where you have to condition yourself to be a single person again. If you are the recipient of spousal support it's a smart idea to use the payments smartly so you are able to pay the bills each month and have a place to live.

Will I receive spousal support?

The purpose of spousal support is to maintain a standard of living that is near that which was established during the marriage. Temporary orders are often put in place during the separation and divorce process, while ongoing orders would accompany the final divorce decree.

Am I Entitled to Spousal Support?

Spousal support, the term used nowadays for what was once called alimony, is fairly simple as a concept. The idea is that if you get divorced, and you do not have the skills or abilities to take care of yourself and live at the same standard you were accustomed to, your spouse must make regular payments to help if they can afford to do so.
