Our Atlanta Alimony Modification Private Investigators have worked with hundreds of clients across the state to help reduce, and at times, eliminate alimony payments. Unlike other states, in Georgia you don’t need to be married in order to lose your alimony payments.
Did you know that if it is determined that your former spouse is living with another adult, a petition can be filed to modify your alimony? Georgia law, commonly referred to as the “live-in” lover statute, addresses this exact situation. Our alimony modification private investigator’s use a process proven to be successful for uncovering meretricious relationships. It is important to contact us before hiring an attorney. Our alimony modification advice is always free! We are able to provide our clients the necessary support in the discovery process, mediation or litigation support.
Although there are several grounds for ending alimony, one of the most common is when a party becomes re-married. In cases of this type, O.C.G.A. § 19-6 indicates that a prior award of alimony can be modified if the receiving party decides to get re-married, then the alimony modification may result in terminating your obligation. However, re-marriage is not the exclusive defining test for ending alimony payments
We offer much more than Alimony Modification Investigations – we offer peace of mind.
Much more common is that after a party’s divorce, one of the parties decides to date and eventually, without getting re-married, moves into the same residence with their new significant other. The State of Georgia has enacted a law, which is commonly referred to as the “live-in” lover statute, addressing this exact situation. According to O.C.G.A. § 19-6-19(b), if your former spouse and their significant other are living together in a meretricious relationship, then you may qualify to file for a modification of alimony. In this type of situation, the court will be under the assumption that the other party’s need for alimony support has just decreased because they are now splitting financial responsibilities with this person.
When deciding whether to seek alimony annulment, alimony relief or modification to an agreement, you need to keep in mind that the court will expect you to have proof of the live-in lover or meretricious relationship. Alimony private investigator’s at The PI Agency employ a practice that is successful in obtaining the required evidence.
