Alimony/Spousal Support

NJ Alimony and Spousal Support Laws

Next to child-related issues in a divorce, alimony or spousal support is typically the most difficult and complicated matter to address in a divorce case. Under New Jersey law, an award of alimony or modification of alimony is based on a labyrinth of statutory considerations and decisions published by the courts. Alimony law is in a constant state of change. In fact, there are enormous changes pending before the New Jersey State Legislature with regard to New Jersey alimony law.
