– New Jersey Alimony Attorneys
In New Jersey Judges have very substantial discretion in awarding alimony. When arriving at alimony awards, the main objective of the NJ courts is to provide each spouse with a standard of living similar to what was maintained during the marriage. Unlike child support, there is no one formula the New Jersey courts use for deciding upon and then finally awarding alimony. Rather there are a flexible set of factors that may be considered in determination including:
Length of marriage,
The marital lifestyle the couple enjoyed,
Income of both spouses,
Anticipated post-divorce expenses,
Future employment opportunities,
As well as other financial obligations including child support.
