Types of New Jersey Alimony | New Jersey Spousal Support Lawyer
The types of New Jersey alimony available to clients include:
- Permanent alimony: Permanent alimony is intended to compensate a spouse for an economic dependence created by the marriage. The purpose of permanent alimony is to allow the supported spouse to continue to live in the lifestyle to which he or she had been accustomed during the marriage. New Jersey courts will generally not order permanent alimony unless the marriage lasted at least ten years.
- Rehabilitative alimony: Rehabilitative alimony is a short term award that allows the former spouse to obtain education, or job training to facilitate reentry into the work force.
- Limited Duration alimony: Limited duration alimony is often awarded in short marriages.
- Reimbursement alimony: This type of alimony considers the financial contributions one spouse has made to the professional training or career development of the other spouse.
