    Default Can Alimony be Reinstated if a New Marriage Doesn't Last

    A couple in Michigan divorced. Their divorce judgment provides that spousal support terminates upon remarriage. The woman remarried and, within a few months, filed to divorce her new husband. Can she successfully petition for her spousal support to be reinstated based upon the failure of her new marriage?

    Default Re: Can Alimony be Reinstated if a New Marriage Doesn't Last

    Under the case of Rickner v. Frederick, 459 Mich. 371, 590 N.W.2d 288 (1999), interpreting the spousal support statute, MCL 552.28, the wife would have the right to petition for reinstatement of her spousal support. That doesn't necessarily mean that a court will grant the petition.
