John J. Gilligan, a family lawyer in Long Beach, answers:
Since child support is for the benefit of your children, you will still need to pay child support. Also, since living with a boyfriend is not equivalent to marriage, you will still need to pay alimony. However, your ex-wife may have reduced financial need if she is being supported by the boyfriend, which may result in your alimony payment being decreased.
