If I get remarried, will I still receive alimony from my ex?

No. Alimony is designed to provide one spouse with financial support during, and sometimes, after a divorce. Alimony allows the receiving spouse to gradually adjust to a new, often reduced, income. If one spouse continues to receive alimony after a divorce, payments will almost certainly cease in the event that the receiving spouse gets remarried. Since the new spouse will presumably provide financial support, payments from the former spouse is no longer seen as necessary.
