Chester Alimony Lawyers Pursuing Your Best Interests After a Divorce

Alimony in New Jersey
Alimony is not meant to punish or reward. It is meant to help the parties be able to live on a somewhat fair and equal basis until the lower-earning spouse can become financially independent.
In New Jersey, alimony can be awarded:
- On a temporary basis while the divorce is pending
- On a limited basis until the receiving spouse can become self-supporting
- On a permanent basis, generally in the case of a long marriage and where other factors support such an award
- As a rehabilitative award to provide financial resources for education or training that will lead to a new job or career
- As reimbursement to a spouse who provided the necessary support for his or her partner to advance education or training in pursuit of a career
Courts can order one or a combination of support options to be paid on a monthly basis. Alimony can also be sought as a lump-sum payment.
