What Happens To My Spousal Support Payment If My Ex Gets Remarried?

What happens to spousal support?

If the person you’re paying it to gets remarried?

Or is in a meretricious relationship?

Does it cease immediately?

Maybe not. If you are paying periodic spousal support, then if the other person gets remarried or in a meretricious relationship, it does cease immediately under Georgia law, but if it is lump sum alimony, even if it is paid on a monthly basis, it does not cease immediately.

The best practice is to have an experienced attorney.

Review your final judgment decree or your settlement agreement in order to properly advise you if you can cease payments, or when you can expect payments to be ceased.
