Demoralizing Call: Sugar Daddy Doesn’t Free Your Ex
In Casey v. Casey, 180 A.D.3d 677, 677–78 (Mem)–686 (2020), ex-husband appeals his spousal support obligation. They divorced in 2015. Pursuant to a settlement agreement, which was incorporated but not merged ex-husband owed child support and maintenance. In October 2017, court found ex-husband did not owe maintenance because new boyfriend was paying.
Ex-wife filed objections and the Support Magistrate reinstated the former husband’s spousal support obligation as there was insufficient evidence that the former wife was “holding … herself out” as that man’s spouse. They declined the ex-wife’s request for sanctions.
