When entering into this area of law, it's important to understand several factors.
New Jersey law requires a number of factors to be considered when determining alimony. These factors include marriage length, the age and earning histories of the parties, as well as child care duties during the marriage. The court has substantial discretion in the determination of alimony including the amount and duration of payments.
There are also many factors that determine child support payments in New Jersey, including income, payment and receipt of alimony as well as the child support calculator provided in court rule guidelines. Regardless of the issue, we can work to develop a plan that maintains continuance of a child's lifestyle within family law guidelines.
In addition, as issues change we're able to work on support modification to ensure continued fairness and equity between parties.
