Maintenance and cohabitation

Q:  is there a specified amount of time that constitutes cohabitation. In other words, does N.Y.S. designate the amount of time that a cohabitant can be with the supported spouse without spousal reduction or elimination?

Generally only actual remarriage results in such a termination. Schedule a consult with an Orange/Westchester Family Law attorney. -- David Bliven, Westchester Family Law attorney (
