I was found in contempt of court and ordered to pay within 30 days or spend 30 days in jail. If I don't pay a lump sum in 30 days then $800 will be deducted from my check. The decree stated "said spousal support order shall terminate upon the death of either party, the obligee's remarriage or cohabitation with an unrelated adult person of the opposite gender". I did not pay because the obligee is and was cohabiting. The magistrate said I did not have the right to decide if defendent was cohabiting said that I was obligated to bring it to the courts attention so I was found in contempt. I presented evidence to the court at the hearing but he did not find her cohabiting. What can I do to object to this decision? Isn't this unfair? It stated "shall terminate upon".
