Understanding Alimony in New Jersey

Alimony, also referred to as spousal support, plays a vital role in New Jersey divorce proceedings. This financial arrangement aims to maintain a similar standard of living post-marriage. New Jersey recognizes various types of alimony, such as open durational, limited duration, rehabilitative, and reimbursement alimony. The calculation considers factors like length of marriage, income, health, and contributions.

Our experienced New Jersey alimony lawyers comprehend alimony in NJ, ensuring tailored strategies for your situation. Whether negotiating pendente lite alimony or presenting a case for open durational alimony in court, we’re equipped to guide you through the complexities of alimony law in New Jersey.

How Is Alimony Calculated in NJ?

Most clients make the mistake of assuming that the process seems simple enough. Some even think that the spouse with more money automatically has to pay the spouse who earns or has less. However, alimony is complex and should be navigated by an experienced Woodbridge Township alimony attorney who can explain how the process works. Over the past few years, New Jersey has made a few changes to the law to protect both parties from being taken advantage of.

Alimony is typically calculated by the following factors:

  • The ability of each spouse to hold a job and earn money
  • If either spouse is disabled or suffers from a medical condition
  • How much income each spouse currently makes
  • The length of the marriage
  • The marital standard of living
  • The health of the parties
  • The ages of the parties
  • The economic and non-economic contributions by either spouse

If you need help calculating alimony, our law firm can guide you.

Representation for Complex Alimony Matters

In New Jersey, permanent alimony no longer exists. In its place is “open-durational” alimony for marriages of at least 20 years in length. Alimony is not mandatory in most cases. However, if one spouse is disabled and cannot work or has a significant disparity in earning abilities, there may be a chance to petition for alimony. Regardless of the exact circumstances you are facing, having a skilled Woodbridge Township family law attorney on your side is essential to the success of your case.

New Jersey Alimony Lawyers

Can alimony payments be modified after they've been established?

Yes, alimony payments can be modified if there’s a significant change in circumstances, such as a job loss, disability, or change in income. Our experienced New Jersey alimony lawyers can help you understand post-divorce modifications.

What's the difference between rehabilitative and open durational alimony?

Rehabilitative alimony provides temporary spousal support while the recipient spouse seeks education or training to become self-supporting. Open durational alimony, on the other hand, is often awarded in long-term marriages and doesn’t have a predetermined end date.

Why is legal representation crucial when dealing with alimony matters?

Alimony cases involve complex legal considerations and financial intricacies. Having skilled New Jersey alimony lawyers by your side ensures you handle the process effectively, negotiate fair terms, and safeguard your financial future.
