Spousal Support Attorney in Newark, New Jersey

We can fight for your rights!

While married, it can be easy to rely on two incomes in order to pay the bills and maintain your lifestyle. After a divorce, many individuals have a difficult time making ends meet while they adjust to only one income. In this case, spousal support may become necessary.

If you are the spouse in need of support, or it is your job to provide the support, it is important to ensure that your desires are met. At Ehrlich, Petriello, Gudin & Plaza, Attorneys at Law, it is our desire to serve as your advocate throughout the divorce process. With over 60 years of combined experience, a Newark divorce attorney from our firm is more than qualified to assist you during this significant time.

How is spousal support determined?

There are several different types of spousal support, or alimony, accepted in the state of New Jersey.

Any of the following may be awarded by the court during your divorce:

  • Temporary alimony
  • Limited duration alimony
  • Permanent alimony
  • Rehabilitative alimony
  • Reimbursement alimony

Temporary alimony is intended to provide for the needs of a financially dependent spouse during the divorce case, often for an unemployed spouse with no means of support. Limited duration alimony is support paid only for a certain period of time. Permanent alimony is typically awarded after a lengthy marriage or if there is a significant need. Rehabilitative alimony must be requested by one spouse, while reimbursement alimony reimburses the more financially supportive spouse.
