I have been divorced for almost 1 year now - I live in Illinois and my ex lives in New York. We were married and divorced in NY. I believe she is now living with someone - does anyone know if this entitles me to have spousal support terminated?

That would depend on the wording of your divorce , does it say cohabitation terminates SS ? Was it court ordered or agreed to ?

The divorce order does not specifically say that support terminates on cohabitation - the support was agreed to in the separation and property settlement agreement and stipulated in the divorce decree. What I don't know is if there is anything in New York State (where she lives) or Illinois ( where I live) law that requires support to terminate on cohabitation.

NY law would apply , and unless you stipulated cohabitation as grounds for SS to end , it can only be stopped on the death of either party , she remarries or it expires based on the term you agreed to pay for .

It doesn't end in Illinois either if she shacks up with someone

Most spouse support issues may terminate if the spouse remarries or cohabitates. Its spelled out in your MSA. Check that, and then talk with your attorney.
