Alimony, also referred to as "spousal support"!

If you are going through a divorce, you may be concerned about the amount of alimony, also referred to as “spousal support,” that you will receive, or be obligated to pay.  At The Law Office of Jill Jedrusiak, LLC, we can help you ensure that the support amount agreed upon or awarded is equitable.   


It is important to keep in mind that alimony in New Jersey is very case-specific.  Judges consider the factors laid out in N.J.S.A. 2A:34-23(b) when determining an alimony award.  Some of these factors include:

• The need and ability of the parties to pay

•  Marriage duration

•  Parties’ age and health

•  Marital standard of living

•  Earning capacities and education

•  Parental responsibilities

Along with many other factors, as defined in the statute.   


There are also different types of alimony under New Jersey law that may be awarded depending on the circumstances of the parties.  These include open durational, limited duration, rehabilitative, and reimbursement alimony.  Therefore, you should meet with an alimony attorney to talk about your unique circumstances and to determine whether alimony, and which type(s), is likely applicable in your case.  

Additionally, if you would like to change a current alimony award,  Attorney Jill Jedrusiak can talk to you about what is required in order to do so and advise you as to whether your particular circumstances could potentially warrant a change.


Contact The Law Office of Jill Jedrusiak, LLC, based in Toms River, for assistance with your New Jersey alimony concern.  Ms. Jedrusiak would be happy to meet with you and discuss your case.
