If the court decides after a divorce that you are obliged to pay alimony to your ex-partner, this is bound to a certain period of time. Despite this period of time, in practice it often happens that after some time you can unilaterally reduce or even end the alimony altogether. Are you obliged to pay alimony to your ex-partner and have you found out, for example, that he or she is living with a new partner? In that case, you have a reason to terminate the alimony obligation. However, you must be able to prove that there is a cohabitation. If you have lost your job or otherwise have less financial capacity, then this is also a reason to reduce the partner alimony. If your ex-partner does not agree to a change or terminate the alimony, you can arrange this in court. You will need a lawyer to do this. A lawyer will have to submit an application for this to the court. Based on this application and the opposing party’s defence, the court will make a decision. Law & More’s divorce lawyers are specialised in questions relating to partner alimony. If you think that your ex-partner is no longer allowed to receive partner alimony or if you think that the amount should be reduced, please contact our experienced lawyers directly so that you do not pay alimony unnecessarily.

A common point of discussion in practice concerns the cohabitation of the alimony recipient. In order to terminate partner alimony, there must be a cohabitation ‘as if they were married’ or as if they were in a registered partnership. There is only a cohabitation as if they were married when the cohabitants have a common household, when they have an affective relationship that is also lasting and when it turns out that the cohabitants take care of each other. It must therefore be a long-term cohabitation, a temporary relationship does not have this purpose. Whether all these requirements are fulfilled is often decided by a judge. The judge will interpret the criteria in a limited way. This means that the judge does not easily decide that there is a cohabitation as if they were married. If you want to terminate the obligation of partner alimony, you have to prove the cohabitation.
If there is indeed a case of ‘living together again’ with a new partner, then the person who is entitled to partner alimony has definitively lost his or her right for alimony. This is also the case when your ex-partner’s new relationship is broken off again. Therefore, you cannot be obliged to pay alimony to your ex-partner again, because his or her new relationship has ended.
