When you and your spouse divorce, there are a number of decisions you must make that will have a long-term impact on your standard of living. One of the decisions the courts generally make on behalf of those involved is whether or not you are required to provide or receive monetary support, which is also known as alimony or spousal support. Tanya L. Freeman of Weiner Law Group and her team of divorce lawyers have a seasoned familiarity with alimony and spousal support law.
Alimony is one of the most frequently litigated issues in divorce, and while the courts strive to split marital assets equitably, equitable does not necessarily mean equal. Our divorce lawyers always work to reach a fair agreement between our client and their spouse in alimony matters.
When determining whether or not alimony should be granted, how much and for how long it should continue, New Jersey courts carefully appraise a couple’s length of marriage, the parties standard of living during the marriage, the relative income of each individual and the needs of each spouse. Retaining our experienced divorce lawyers to handle your alimony case can help you persuade the court that you need support. Alternatively, our divorce lawyers can also work to persuade the court that your ex-spouse does not need alimony or spousal support, or needs less than asked for.
Tanya L. Freeman of Weiner Law Group and her team of divorce lawyers represents clients who are seeking alimony as well as those who would be required to pay alimony. Our clients are often concerned about whether they are required to pay alimony if their circumstances change. Others come to our divorce lawyers if they are not receiving the alimony payments specified by the agreement. Our Divorce Lawyers can help you present evidence to the court as to why the alimony amount you pay should be decreased or request that the court properly enforce the alimony agreement.
