Under New Jersey law, the financially dependent party in a divorce may be entitled to alimony. Determining the appropriate amount (if any) and duration of alimony depends on a number of factors that are contingent on the unique facts of each individual case. Having an experienced matrimonial lawyer represent you with regard to the issue of alimony is imperative to protecting your rights and ensuring that an alimony determination is appropriate under the unique circumstances of the case at hand.
Determining how to divide assets in a divorce can be one of the most nuanced and complex parts of the divorce process.
