Alimony in Utah

Every state has faced the issue of alimony when a couple has divorced and how to handle cohabitation with the ex-spouse that receives alimony. Florida is no exception and it is an issue I face with all of my clients that face alimony or are already paying alimony. However, in Utah, the courts are taking steps towards to eliminating alimony obligations when the ex-spouse resides with a new partner.

A recent ruling in the Utah Court of Appeals agreed with the trial court’s ruling that the husband should stop paying his $7,000 a month alimony obligation after it was determined that the ex-wife started living with her new boyfriend.

The case focused on the interpretation of the word “cohabitation.” The trial judge considered three factors.

  1. a shared residence;
  2. an intimate relationship;
  3. common household involving shared expenses and shared decisions.

Of course, one issue that won’t change is that partners simply won’t reside with each other and keep their expenses separated.
