When you and your spouse divorce, there are a number of decisions you need to make that will have a long-term impact on your standard of living. One of the decisions New Jersey courts generally make on behalf of those involved is whether or not you are required to provide or receive monetary support, which is also known as alimony or spousal support.
Alimony is one of the most frequently litigated issues in divorce, and while courts and lawyers strive to split marital assets equitably, equitable does not necessarily mean equal. At Weiner Law Group LLP, our divorce attorneys have a seasoned familiarity with alimony law, and always work to reach a fair agreement between our client and the opposing party.
Experienced In Negotiating And Litigating Alimony Agreements
When determining whether or not alimony should be granted, how much should be awarded and for how long it should continue, New Jersey courts carefully appraise a couple’s length of marriage, their standard of living during the marriage, the relative income of each individual and the needs of each spouse.
Retaining an experienced family law attorney can help you persuade the court that you need support. Alternatively, we can also work to persuade the court that your ex-spouse does not need spousal support or needs less than he or she asked for.
Working For Your Peace Of Mind And Financial Security
At Weiner Law Group LLP, our divorce attorneys represent clients who are seeking alimony as well as those who might be required to pay it. Our clients are often concerned about whether they are required to pay alimony if their circumstances change. Others come to us if they are not receiving the alimony payments specified by the agreement. We can help you present evidence to the court as to why the amount you pay should be decreased or request that the court properly enforce the alimony agreement.
