The Oregon legislature is considering ending all alimony after the recipient remarries and giving men more time to challenge their paternity of children they are supporting. Here’s a story about it from The Associated Press on Oregon Live.
It’s a typical pattern in Oregon for the court to suspend alimony when a recipient remarries, but the alimony can be reinstated if the marriage doesn’t work out. “At some point, you should not be able to go back to a former spouse and reconnect for support,” said Sen. Floyd Prozanski, D-Eugene. Senate Bill 945 would do that.
