One of the most common divorce-related issues is alimony. Oftentimes, when spouses divorce, one spouse is financially dependent, and the other spouse is financially independent. When this happens, Connecticut courts will award the financially dependent spouse alimony payments, of which the financially independent spouse will have to pay. These payments can extend for various durations, and Connecticut courts will consider a wide array of factors when determining for how long the financially independent spouse will have to pay.
That being said, there are times where things change, and one spouse no longer requires alimony payments, even before they were set to terminate. One common example of this is when the dependent spouse begins living with, or cohabitating, with another person. When this happens, the other spouse can request a post-judgment modification, wherein he or she can request that the courts terminate alimony payments on the basis that the once-dependent spouse now has another person to support him or her. However, to prove that the other spouse is indeed living with another partner, oftentimes, a cohabitation investigation is necessary. Our Connecticut private investigators for lawyers can help. Please continue reading and give us a call to learn more about cohabitation investigations and how our team can help. Here are some of the questions you may have:
How can I prove that a former spouse is now cohabitating with another person?
To start, you should understand that there are various signs of cohabitation that our team will look out for in our cohabitation investigation. Some of the most common indicators that someone is cohabitating with another person are:
- Two people are sharing a residence.
- Those two people are working around the house together.
- Those two people are sharing a vehicle.
- Those people are sharing the cost of rent and/or other living expenses.
That being said, when one supposedly financially dependent person is still continuing to benefit from unwarranted alimony payments, your client is most likely looking to terminate those payments, as they are no longer necessary. Our team of private investigators can take various steps to survey the home to prove that your client’s former spouse is indeed cohabitating with another person and no longer requires alimony payments. Our team can conduct surveillance, examine public records, monitor social media accounts, and otherwise undercover investigate your client’s former spouse. This will help you and your client obtain the information you need to hopefully have your post-judgment modification granted so your client can move on with his or her life.
