How Much Alimony Will You Pay Or Receive?

Settling the question of alimony is one of the most difficult aspects of divorce. Unfortunately, there are no strict guidelines — only factors that the courts consider in resolving the issue of spousal support. Our Essex County, New Jersey, divorce attorneys can help you understand New Jersey’s divorce laws concerning alimony, and provide the legal advice and representation you require to put your needs in their best light.

Set up a free consultation with Nitti & Nitti, P.C. by calling 973-226-4141. You can also fill out our online contact form to schedule a meeting at our office in Roseland, New Jersey.

Types Of Alimony In New Jersey

At Nitti & Nitti, P.C., we represent the interests of both husbands and wives in matters involving spousal support, child support and division of property. We have assisted countless clients in alimony disputes throughout New Jersey, including Livingston, Maplewood, South Orange, East Hanover and Summit, New Jersey.

Our Essex County alimony attorneys can advise you on the three types of spousal support in New Jersey, which are:

  • Rehabilitative alimony – Rehabilitative alimony is a temporary form of support and is the most common type of alimony ordered as part of a divorce.
  • Reimbursement alimony – Reimbursement alimony is also temporary and is granted as repayment to spouses for support in helping their partner attend school and/or professional training.
  • Open durational alimony – Open durational alimony is awarded primarily in cases where the marriage was lengthy and where one spouse would be at a significant advantage in supporting themselves and their lifestyle.

Factors considered by courts in deciding whether to grant alimony — and if so, which type — include the relative age, income, health, education, work, experience and lifestyle of each spouse.

If alimony is granted in your New Jersey divorce case, there is no magic spousal support calculator to tell you how much alimony you will have to pay or how much alimony you will receive. The judge will decide an alimony award amount based on certain factors.
