How & When Is Spousal Support Awarded in New Jersey Divorce Cases?

If divorcing parties can agree on the terms of spousal support, they can enter their agreement with the family court, and it will generally be approved. When there are disputes over spousal support, however, the court will step in and consider the following factors to determine if alimony should be awarded:

  • The length of the marriage
  • Each party’s earning capacity
  • The ability of each party to cover expenses
  • The distribution of parental responsibilities
  • Each party’s financial and non-financial contributions to the marriage

Generally, committing violent crimes during a marriage will bar an individual from obtaining spousal support in New Jersey divorce cases.

How Long Does Spousal Support Last Under New Jersey Law?

The duration of spousal support will depend on several factors, including:

  • The type of alimony awarded: Spousal support can be temporary or longer-term. For example, while rehabilitative alimony may only be available for job training over the short term, open durational alimony can be paid indefinitely, as long as the recipient has a legitimate reason as to why (s)he can’t financially support him- or herself.
  • Whether a modification occurs in the future: As life and financial circumstances change, it may be necessary to pursue modifications of spousal support in the future. This can be the case when one party is unable to afford the payments due to, for example, job loss or the development of a new health condition.
