Morris County Alimony Attorney

Spousal Support in Morris County, NJ

Spousal support, also known as alimony, is similar to child support, in that it is a payment one spouse makes to the other on a monthly basis to help makes ends meet and cover the spouse's basic living expenses. In the event of a divorce, it often becomes necessary for one spouse (generally the spouse that has a larger income) to help support his or her ex-spouse, until such a time that the supported spouse can become financially independent. If you and your spouse are considering divorce, and you would like more information on alimony, contact a Morris County divorce lawyer from our firm today.

Alimony is not a permanent situation. It is usually temporary, and is determined by the length of the marriage, among other things. However, alimony becomes permanent under certain circumstances, for example, if one spouse becomes permanently disabled. Many factors are taken into consideration before spousal support is awarded. How long a couple was married, the income of both spouses, the ability of one spouse to find or maintain a job, and more, are all factored in to the decision. In addition, if circumstances change, and one spouse no longer needs support, or if the supporting spouse is no longer able to pay as much (for example, due to the loss of their job), a post judgment motion can be put forth that requests a modification of the spousal support orders so that they better suit the new situation.
