Customer Question

I am in the process of a negotiated divorce settlement in which my ex-wife will get alimony.

I understand the English law provides for discontinuing alimony in case she marries, although I may have to petition for that to happen. What does the law says regarding discontinuing alimony in case of living together without marriage?

I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
