Establish Fair Alimony Payments Using Our Representation

In many divorces, trying to agree upon the amount of alimony to pay or receive each month leads to serious discord and even litigation between the spouses. Most people have no desire to pay an ex-spouse support, no matter the situation.

On the other hand, many are entitled by law to receive support from an ex-spouse to help keep them keep afloat after their divorce. To feel comfortable and confident in the future when a divorce finalizes, setting a balanced and fair alimony amount is a must.

When a spouse made most or all of the income, it can be expected for them to pay some amount of alimony to the other after divorce. It is often just a matter of negotiation, which is where our attorneys can step in, take over, and exceed your expectations.

New Jersey’s Different Types of Alimony

In New Jersey, alimony can be awarded in one of various forms, including:

  • Open durational: When a marriage of 20 years or more ends in divorce, open durational alimony is used to set alimony without a specific end date. Formerly, this type of alimony was called “permanent alimony” before New Jersey updated its laws in 2014. To create an end date for open durational alimony, an application for a post-judgment modification proving a significant change in circumstances must be filed with the Court.
  • Pendente lite: Many divorcees will struggle to support themselves even before a divorce finalizes. Pendente lite alimony is established while the divorce is pending. When the divorce ends, pendente lite alimony will usually be eliminated or replaced by a new set of alimony terms.
  • Rehabilitative: To help the spouse of lesser income enter the workforce and find gainful employment after living more or less dependently on the other, rehabilitative alimony can be established. This form of alimony is generally brief in duration, as it is expected to terminate once the receiving spouse finds steady employment, or completes an education.
  • Limited duration: Marriages that did not last 20 years or more will usually include limited duration alimony. You can expect limited duration alimony to be set for percentage of the time you were married. The changes to the alimony statute in 2014 allow for one year of alimony for every year you are married, however this is not set in stone. Limited duration alimony cases vary from case to case based on the facts and require an experienced attorney to help negotiate the best outcome possible.
  • Reimbursement: The final form of alimony in New Jersey might be the most complicated. Reimbursement alimony is meant to repay one spouse for any monetary contributions they made to help the other spouse complete education, training, or certification during the marriage. Imagine that you paid fully for your ex-spouse’s college education and they are now earning the greater income. In this situation, you could ask for reimbursement alimony over the course of several years in order to be repaid the amount of the tuition that you paid.

Real Reviews From Previous Clients

  • Short, Sweet and Thankful

    “All I have to say is this, Elizabeth is an exceptional Lawyer, and in the field of Law, I can tell you she is a game-changer, I came to her in dire need to help me obtain my Daughter through emergency circumstances, the timing was urgent, and in a matter of hours she was able to accomplish custody of my daughter, she had only 2 hours to prepare for our hearing. That's all she needed, as sharp as she is, surprised it took her that long, Ha. This is a person that reminded me that there is a lot of good in this world. If anyone were to read this, I want to assure you that she will exhaust every opportunity and resource to get the job done accordingly. I would highly, HIGHLY, recommend her to anyone in need of Professional. Job Well Done Elizabeth, Zoë and I are very thankful.”

  • Exceptional Attorney

    “Elizabeth has been representing our family for over a year now in a very sad and complicated custody case that involves the protection of my step daugter. It was a case where the original custody was out of another state. From the day we retained her she's been a godsend. Her motions and arguments reflect the personal interest she takes in every client. She's direct, honest, and very realistic. She's taken us through the temporary emergency custody process...the permanent custody process...and now the child support and contested custody process. She was instrumental in getting the jurisdiction of the child's custody granted to NJ. She has always prepared us for the worst yet we walked out with what we needed to happen each and every time. She's still fighting for this child through this last phase. Elizabeth is a true child advocate it's been apparent since day one. You never know what judges are going to decide but Elizabeth knows the laws, she knows the court room game, she develops a strategy and in my family's eyes she's a top notch attorney. I know one day soon she will climb to the ranks of one of the most powerful family attorneys in this state if she isn't alreay there. She's aggressive, smart, honest and a true talent at what she does.”

    Lynette D.

  • Amazing Lawyer!!!

    “Elizabeth was amazing from the very beginning of my divorce process. She not only was clear and prompt in all communication, but also connected with me on a personal level where I felt very comfortable going into all details of my divorce and the reasons why I was getting divorced. I whole heartily recommend her and her team. Not only did she help me through the process, but did so within 4 months! I met her in March and was divorced by June! Thank you so much Liz, you are truly an exceptional lawyer!!”

    Shirley G.

  • Successful Relocation

    “Elizabeth Rozin-Golinder successfully represented my wife on a couple of occasions. Once was for child custody and the most recent was for child relocation, which required a plenary hearing. Elizabeth was very easy to communicate with in person, over the phone and through email. She worked very diligently to ensure that each case was aggressively presented and won. I highly recommend Elizabeth to anyone in need of a top notch family attorney.”

  • Very Highly Competent, Excellent, Compassionate, NJ's Top Attorney

    “I retained her after reading online reviews about her and I am so glad I believed it. I read other client comments and I truly agree with them she is an Exceptional attorney who has helped me to get my kids back to NJ, then got my TRO dismissed in a full blown FRO trial and represented me in my divorce case too. My case was extensively litigious and very volatile. The way Elizabeth handled it was TERRIFIC. She is one of the Attorneys who does not want unnecessary litigation unless the opposing party doesn't want to settle and keeps litigating and we had to go through it. She knows the LAW and very often she is able to read the Judge's mind which I have witnessed in the court order.”
