How to prove that your spouse has a new partner

If you are paying alimony to your spouse after a divorce, you may know that those payments can be cut off or at least reduced if your spouse starts living with someone else -- either after getting married or in a relationship that is very similar to marriage. It's important to know some ways in which you can demonstrate that your spouse is in fact living with a new partner in New Jersey, meaning support from you is no longer necessary.

First and foremost, you may find out about the new relationship from your children. In fact, your ex may tell the kids not to mention it to you, but they may not be able to keep the secret to themselves. This instruction may show that your spouse wants to hide the relationship -- not to save your feelings but to keep those payments coming.

You can also look for things that are happening around the home that a live-in partner may be doing. This could include mowing the front lawn or doing minor maintenance on the house.

If you have access to them, things like bank records and cellphone records can also be helpful in proving the relationship. However, these things may be private, and therefore, they may not be of much help to you unless your spouse shows them to you -- perhaps for the sake of showing how the money is being used.

Finally, you can always look on social media. Often, pictures and statuses will reveal that a couple is living together, even if they deny it in person.

Make sure that you know how the laws surrounding alimony work so that you are never taken advantage of.
