Oakhurst, Howell and Toms River Offices serving all of New Jersey

If you’re thinking about ending your marriage in New Jersey, alimony may be foremost on your mind. Whether you believe you are entitled to alimony, or you suspect you will have to pay it, you want to make sure the alimony in your case is fair and reasonable.

Alimony, which is sometimes called spousal support, is designed to equalize the standard of living between the husband and wife.

Any divorce can cause a dramatic financial upheaval for both spouses. The idea behind alimony is that neither spouse should be forced to live in drastically reduced circumstances, as this can deter people from getting divorced in the first place.

If a person feels economically trapped in a marriage, it’s not a good state of affairs for anyone. Alimony is supposed to level the playing field for both sides.

Get a Fair Result in Your Case

New Jersey courts have relatively broad discretion when it comes to awarding alimony. Unlike child support, alimony is not calculated based on a mathematical formula.

Rather, the court considers the unique circumstances involved in the case and decides an appropriate amount and duration for alimony.

Because courts wield a lot of discretion in the area of New Jersey Alimony Lawyer, it is critically important to make sure your attorney has wide-ranging experience with all types of divorce cases, including high-asset divorce and divorces involving business assets.

Your financial future depends heavily on how much alimony you will pay or receive. It’s important to choose wisely when selecting the right attorney for your case.
