Alimony Lawyer in Cherry Hill, NJ
In more than 35 years as a Cherry Hill alimony attorney, I have learned that every case is unique, and each client will have different needs both during and after the divorce process. In some cases, one of the parties will continue to require the financial support of the other party through spousal support payments. In that situation, I will provide your case with the personal attention it deserves and explain to you what you can expect throughout the divorce process and how alimony is determined.

Determining Spousal Support Amounts
New Jersey does not have a specific formula for determining alimony as it does for child support. There are, however, criteria according to which calculations are generally made when determining spousal support. Some of these include:
- Duration of the marriage
- Age of the parties
- Earning capacity
- Educational level, vocational skills, and employability of the party
- Parental responsibilities
- Actual need and ability to pay
- Physical & emotional/psychological health of the parties
There are a number of other criteria as well. Each case is unique, and alimony is not always part of the financial settlement or resolution. I will listen to your needs and concerns and discuss with you the likelihood of whether you will pay or receive alimony under New Jersey law.
In some cases, property division ordered in the property settlement agreement can affect whether or not alimony payments are required. I will work with you to determine the best approach to take in your case, according to your unique interests and your needs.
