Court Weighs Several Factors to Determine Support
Our experienced attorneys understand that the question that most concerns our clients about alimony is how much support will be paid and for how long. In New Jersey, there is no precise calculation or formula for how a court will determine an award of alimony. Rather, the court will consider a number of factors, including:

  • Duration of the marriage;
  • Age and health of the parties;
  • Standard of living enjoyed during the marriage;
  • Earning capacity and educational background of the parties; and
  • Parental responsibilities for the children of the marriage.
  • Imputation of income
Alimony

Four types of Alimony

We handle cases that involve the four different types of alimony permitted under New Jersey law (open duration, limited duration, rehabilitative, and reimbursement) and are adept at handling alimony issues in various stages of the divorce process, including pendent lite and post-judgment issues.
