Q: My kids father and I divorced this year. My boyfiend and I would like to get married. My divorce decree states hat I am to receive alimony til 2020. My boyfriend does not have income nor will be living with me for a couple years til he finishes school. So he wont be contributing to the household for a while. Will my alimony become void if I get married. The decree doesnt say anything about getting married to 2020
A: David's Answer: It depends. If there was a stipulation of settlement, and it's silent on termination, then ARGUABLY the remarriage wouldn't result in termination of maintenance. However, if its a mere judgment of divorce, then the statute would clearly cover this situation - remarriage would automatically terminate the maintenance award.
