Factors Considered in Determining Alimony Payments
In New Jersey, the court can examine certain aspects when it determines spousal support:
- The health and age of both parties
- The length of the marriage
- The standard of living that was established in the marriage
- The earning ability of each party
- If there are specific expensive a party is not able to pay on their own
- Whether a party needs training or education to find viable employment
Reason for Spousal Support
Alimony is normally not a permanent agreement and will normally have a definite timeframe or reason for the termination of payments. It is designed to allow for both spouses to have a comfortable lifestyle following their divorce. Another main component of the alimony arrangements is to allow for a balanced economic condition for both parties.
