New Jersey Divorce Lawyers Experienced in Alimony
Alimony is one of the highly contested issues in a divorce. Unlike child support, which in New Jersey is generally determined based upon the New Jersey child support guidelines, there is no specific formula to determine a litigant’s alimony award or obligation. Rather, there are several factors that New Jersey Courts may consider in determining alimony, including but not limited to:
- The duration of the marriage;
- The age and physical health of the litigants;
- The standard of living during the marriage;
- The earning capacities and educational levels of the litigants; and
- The parental responsibilities for the children of the marriage.
