Spousal Support in NJ
There is no cookie-cutter calculation for determining spousal support. Judges must consider certain criteria, as set forth by New Jersey law to make a determination. This includes factors like the length of your marriage, the income and education of you and your spouse, future earning potential, and more. However, each individual Judge interprets and weighs the facts of your case with his/her own legal insight to determine what the court deems equitable. Naturally, this results in varying outcomes. While no attorney can guarantee a specific result, retaining legal representation from a law firm that specializes in this area can greatly improve your ability to obtain a judgment that satisfies your financial requirements.
