Alimony in Moorestown

Helping You Understand & Calculate Spousal Support

Throughout the divorce process and afterward, one spouse may require financial support from the other in the form of alimony, also known as spousal support or maintenance. These payments allow the receiving spouse to continue having the lifestyle—or as close to it as possible—the couple was accustomed to throughout their marriage until he/she becomes self-supporting. However, coming to an agreement can be quite challenging if the paying spouse is reluctant to award the other alimony.

At Stolfe Zeigler New Jersey Group, we are dedicated to helping our clients obtain the best results in their divorce and family law cases. Whether you are seeking alimony or paying it, our Moorestown divorce lawyers can help you understand your rights and protect them throughout the legal process.

New Jersey Alimony Laws

There are five types of alimony in New Jersey: temporary, permanent, limited duration, rehabilitative, and reimbursement alimony.

During a divorce, temporary alimony can be awarded to those who earn a low income or are unemployed to cover living expenses until the divorce is finalized. Limited duration alimony lasts until the receiving spouse is able to support himself/herself.

If a spouse gave up his/her career or education opportunities to take care of the family, he/she may be entitled to permanent alimony. Rehabilitative alimony is designed to provide a spouse with education and training to become self-supporting. Reimbursement alimony pays back a spouse who supported the other while advancing his/her education and was expected to enjoy the benefits of that advancement had it not been for the divorce.

A New Jersey judge will determine the amount and duration of spousal support based on the following factors:

  • Duration of the marriage
  • The needs of the requesting spouse
  • The paying spouse’s ability to provide alimony
  • The age and health of each spouse
  • The income, earning capacity, employment experience, and education level of each spouse
  • The standard of living throughout the marriage
  • Children in the marriage
  • Each spouse’s contributions to the marriage, both financial and nonfinancial
  • The time and expense for a requesting spouse to obtain education or training to become self-supporting

Keep in mind, alimony payments are not based on marital fault. So if a spouse commits adultery or otherwise behaves badly during the marriage, alimony can still be awarded.
