What Do You Need to Know About Alimony in New Jersey?
There are several types of alimony available to spouses under New Jersey law. These include pedente lite alimony, which is temporary alimony awarded prior to the final judgment of divorce, and permanent alimony, where one spouse provides financial support to the other spouse over a long period of time. Rehabilitative alimony, on the other hand, is awarded for a short term and is intended to help a spouse pursue education and training to achieve greater financial stability.
Reimbursement alimony is a short-term payment process to reimburse a spouse for economic sacrifices made during the marriage. By far the most common form of alimony, however, is limited duration alimony, also called term alimony. This alimony is awarded for a set amount of time and is common in mid-length marriages. Our Fair Lawn alimony lawyers has experience dealing with a variety of alimony cases and can provide the guidance you need to make the best decision regarding your alimony settlement.
How is alimony determined in New Jersey?
