New Jersey Alimony and Spousal Support Agreements
New Jersey has complex rules governing alimony. There is Reimbursement Alimony, Permanent Alimony, Limited Duration Alimony, and Rehabilitative Alimony.
Unfortunately, estimating the amount of alimony that will be paid or received can be complex and tricky task. That is because a lot of factors need to weighed and considered.
These are some of the factors we weigh when determining alimony:
- The difference in the divorcing parties’ incomes
- The duration of the marriage
- The employability, educational levels, earning capacities, and vocational skills of each of the parties
- How old the parties are, along with their physical health and emotional health
- How much it would cost and how long it would take to obtain enough education to allow a party to secure appropriate employment
- Each party’s history of financial (or non-financial) contributions to the marriage
- How much each party is contributing to the children’s care and education
- The Equitable distribution of property that has been agreed upon, as well as the payouts
- The standard of living that was established in the marriage, and how likely it is that each party will be able to maintain that standard of living (or a reasonably comparable one)
- How long the requesting party has been away from the job market
- The tax consequences (to both parties) of any proposed alimony
- Anything else relevant to alimony.
These factors are considered when determining how much alimony and how long it will be paid or received.
