Types Of Alimony In 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.
