Cohabitation may terminate or reduce alimony

-

If a New Jersey Court determines that a party who is receiving alimony has been cohabiting with a paramour, the Court may terminate or reduce that party's alimony award. The Court may terminate or reduce alimony retroactively to the time when the Court determines that recipient of alimony began to cohabit with his or her paramour. This could result in the recipient of alimony having to pay back the alimony he or she received to the party who was paying the alimony.
