Protect Your Rights With a Toms River Spousal Support Lawyer

New Jersey courts may order the payment of alimony for a limited duration or on a permanent basis. There are three types of alimony in New Jersey:

  • Limited duration alimony: This is awarded in situations where permanent alimony is not appropriate, but it is warranted for a short time.
  • Rehabilitative alimony: This type is awarded while a former spouse completes education or training in order to enter the workforce.
  • Permanent alimony: In cases where a former spouse lacks earning ability, due to a variety of factors, permanent alimony may be awarded.

New Jersey courts have rough guidelines to consult when establishing alimony but have discretion when coming to a final divorce decree. It is often in the best interests of clients to work together to come to a settlement. We will protect the interests of our clients in settlement negotiation and, when necessary, will defend our clients in family court.
