Terminating or Reducing Spousal Support

Terminating or Reducing Spousal Support

 According to Ohio law, if your decree of divorce reserves jurisdiction as to spousal support, you may be able to reduce or increase your support based upon a change in circumstances that has occurred since the last court entry. Contact this office to discuss what options are available to you. 
 
Further, if your decree of divorce reserves the ability to terminate spousal support based upon cohabitation, our office understands the legal strategies needed to prove cohabitation. Under established Ohio law, you must prove 1) that your ex is living with another individual for a sustained duration, that there are 2) sharing of familial or financial responsibilities and 3) consortium. However, the most recent case law from the Ohio Supreme Court has opened the door to making it even easier to establish cohabitation. Contact us at the Law Office of Lisa K. Meier, L.L.C. so that we can discuss strategies with you for proving cohabitation.
