Divorced husband still has duties, says top court

Rome, August 26 - An ex-wife's new relationship does not mean her former husband can stop paying alimony and child support, Italy's highest court ruled Monday. 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.
