Can alimony be modified or terminated in Georgia?
Return to FAQ Videos
Alimony can be modified or terminated in Georgia under certain circumstances. In some instances, the decree or the settlement agreement will provide that alimony expires upon a certain term. It can also expire upon the death of either party, or the remarriage of the recipient, or the cohabitation of the recipient in a meretricious relationship. These can also be waived as part of a settlement agreement, so it’s important to consult with your attorney when you’re reaching an agreement to determine when and how alimony terminates.
