How does alimony work?

In the State of New Jersey, alimony can take different forms, depending on the length of the marriage, the amount of money each party makes, and other circumstances. One of the primary differences in spousal support payments is the duration of time that they last. Most types of alimony are arranged for a limited period of time, with amounts varying based on the individual details that exist between the two parties involved. For marriages of 20 years or longer, open duration alimony may be considered. Open duration alimony has no definite end date.

For more details on the various options available to you, contact our firm. We’ll walk you through alimony possibilities based on your unique situation. Factors that can affect alimony payments include the health of the parties involved, how each spouse contributed to the relationship throughout the marriage, and other key topics.

Alimony modifications

Some types of spousal support can be modified by the court due to a change in circumstances or for other reasons. Other types of alimony cannot be amended. Major life changes can sometimes alter the need for financial assistance. These situations may include retirement or a new relationship. We are able to help you find out which modifications, if any, are applicable to your current alimony situation. Our attorney can also file for an amendment if necessary, or for the termination of alimony if circumstances allow.
