Divorced husband still has duties, says top court
High court says new partner does not end maintenance bill26 August, 18:48
Until the new romantic relationship provides "stability, continuity and regularity" to an ex-wife, her former husband must continue his responsibilities, the Court of Cassation said, rejecting an appeal of lower court rulings.
That appeal was launched by a man who wants to change the terms of his ex-wife's support payments.
The high court agreed with the other rulings, saying that the ex-husband must also contribute to child support, including medical, school and cultural expenses, such as courses of study in Italy or abroad, or sports activities.
