Determining Alimony in New Jersey

The judge will consider several factors when deciding upon spousal support during a divorce. These include:

  • The duration of the marriage (spousal support typically requires the marriage to have lasted more than 10 years)
  • Sacrifices made by one spouse to support the other’s education
  • Sacrifices made by one spouse to support the other’s career
  • The potential financial independence of both spouses
  • The earning potential of both spouses, especially if influenced by sacrifices made for the other
  • Lifestyle expectations

Based on these circumstances, the judge may decide to grant spousal support. These payments are generally only required for a set period of time. They are to be used by the supported spouse to help that person get back on his or her feet, finding education or career opportunities to move on with their life.
