Calculating Alimony

There is no hard and fast rule for determining the duration or amount of alimony; NJSA 2A:34-23 sets forth the numerous factors that are taken into consideration when the Court makes an alimony determination:

  • The duration of your marriage
  • Each party's income
  • Child-rearing responsibilities
  • Earning potential, etc.

It’s important that you obtain a comprehensive and accurate list of your assets in order to reach a fair alimony arrangement. There are many things that are easy to overlook, but this is where an attorney can help. Our trusted spousal support attorneys in Somerset County can help you review assets and the terms of your divorce, and calculate what a fair spousal support arrangement would look like.
