What about alimony?

While marriages can end for various reasons, the vast majority of divorces end up revolving around two things: money and custody of any children. How the marital assets and accounts will be divided, who takes which debts and how child support and alimony will factor into the equation are all important issues to discuss with your attorney when you are considering or have already filed for divorce.

Alimony is often confused with spousal support, and there are many myths surrounding who can receive monetary support from their former spouses. While spousal support is usually temporary and is used just to help the other party get established, alimony is often paid over many years and is normally only stopped if the receiving spouse gets remarried.

The laws for alimony are different in each state, and not every couple's marriage qualifies for one spouse to get alimony payments from the other. The financial status of both parties, the length of the marriage and the lifestyle the couple enjoyed while married are all possible factors.

If you are entitled to alimony, the financial support can be a great help in the years following the divorce as you adjust to a new normal. However, if you think you may have to make payments to your former spouse, you may have concerns. It's normal and expected to be worried about your financial status after a divorce, and at McCurrie, McCurrie & McCurrie, we can help you understand how the New Jersey alimony guidelines may apply to your situation and answer any questions you may have.
