Calculating Alimony in New Jersey

When determining alimony, the goal of the court is to ensure that each spouse maintains a standard of living similar to what they enjoyed while married. There is not one single formula that New Jersey courts use to decide upon and award alimony. Instead, there is a loose set of guidelines suggesting factors that may be considered in determination.

These factors include:

  • The length of the marriage
  • The marital lifestyle the couple enjoyed
  • The income of both spouses
  • The anticipated post-divorce expenses
  • Each spouse’s educational level
  • Each spouse’s employment history and future employment opportunities
  • Other financial obligations, such as child support

We understand what you are going through is not easy; in fact, this situation may be one of the most emotionally taxing events of your life. With this in mind, our goal is to find an effective solution to your problem. We strive to ensure that you understand all of your options and that you are kept well informed about the status of your case from start to finish. Before trying to tackle these difficult family law matters yourself, we encourage you to discuss your situation with our New Jersey divorce attorneys.
