Alimony in New Jersey

Alimony is not meant to punish or reward. It is meant to help the parties be able to live on a somewhat fair and equal basis until the lower-earning spouse can become financially independent.

In New Jersey, alimony can be awarded:

  • On a temporary basis while the divorce is pending
  • On a limited basis until the receiving spouse can become self-supporting
  • On a permanent basis, generally in the case of a long marriage and where other factors support such an award
  • As a rehabilitative award to provide financial resources for education or training that will lead to a new job or career
  • As reimbursement to a spouse who provided necessary support for his or her partner to advance education or training in pursuit of a career

Courts can order one or a combination of support options to be paid on a monthly basis. Alimony can also be sought as a lump-sum payment.
