Legal Answers
Q. Can my ex stop alimony if my boyfriend moves in with me? I have rehabilitative alimony in TN.
A: Your husband should still be required to pay for alimony as long as you don't remarry. Rehabilitative alimony is usually used for an economically disadvantaged spouse to acquire additional education or training so that they may achieve a standard of living similar to what they had during the marriage. Since the terms of your alimony seem to state that this ends when the "period expires" or when you re-marry, this alimony ends if you finish your education or other vocational job training, or if you re-marry. Overall, your boyfriend moving in with you should not have an impact on your ex paying for alimony
