Termination of Spousal Support

The termination of spousal support can also be impacted upon where you live. Generally, spousal support will terminate upon the death of either party.

For most counties in Ohio spousal support can also terminate upon the remarriage of a party or the receiver of spousal support cohabitating with an unrelated person in a manner tantamount to marriage. Not all counties believe that spousal support should be terminated upon remarriage or upon cohabitation. Proving cohabitation is not nearly as easy as it might sound. The key is showing that it is tantamount to marriage. Many people believe that is an easy thing to establish, but it is not and someone should not naturally assume that because their ex-spouse has a boyfriend or girlfriend that it automatically means that their spousal support is going to be terminated with easily.
