What Is the Intention behind Alimony?

The purpose of alimony is not to penalize one former spouse while enriching the other. The goal is to find balance to allow both parties to live equitably for a determined period of time, in a manner similar to that during the marriage. In other words, both men and women are eligible to receive alimony payments

This allows the lower earning spouse time to get back on their feet, easing the transition between married life to being single again and providing a way for them to become self-sufficient. In East Brunswick, Freehold, and Wall, New Jersey, family law attorney Jeffrey W. Goldblatt can discuss options with you so that you can pursue the best possible outcome for your case.

How Is Alimony Determined?

New Jersey courts can order alimony and spousal support after a divorce. As your alimony lawyer, Mr. Goldblatt will help you understand the factors used to determine spousal support payments. He will work closely with you to decide the appropriate amount of alimony payments, how long they may be necessary, and what to expect from a court determination.

The state of New Jersey considers a variety of factors when it comes to determining how long spousal support should last and what amount should be paid. Among these are the education level of each party, their earning potential, the division of marital assets, the age of each party, child-rearing responsibilities, the duration of the marriage, the health of the parties, the standard of living established in the marriage, and any previous work experience.

It is important to note that marital fault has no impact on determining spousal support payments. This means that if a spouse has been unfaithful or if there have been instances of domestic violence, any settlement will not be affected. 

The Law Offices of Jeffrey W. Goldblatt Esq., in East Brunswick, Freehold, and Wall, New Jersey will represent your best interests. As your divorce lawyer, Mr. Goldblatt will present your case to the court in a clear and concise manner in order to obtain the best possible result. For over three decades, Attorney Jeffrey W. Goldblatt and his law firm have worked tirelessly to provide family law solutions to the communities of East Brunswick, Freehold, and Wall, New Jersey.

Goldblatt Esq., in East Brunswick, Freehold, and Wall, New Jersey, can help address any family law concerns you may have when establishing child custody and a spousal support plan. 

In determining child support, the state of New Jersey uses a formula based on a series of clearly defined inputs. Depending on the formula's application to a case, it will output a minimum amount a party should pay. However, many different factors can change the final amount.

What are the Different Types of Alimony?

The compassionate divorce lawyer at our law offices, Jeffrey W. Goldblatt, understand that when a family goes through a divorce, they deserve a solution that best suits their individual needs. When it comes to determining alimony in East Brunswick, Freehold, and Wall, New Jersey, every case is unique. There is a variety of alimony and spousal support types and the court may award any combination of these orders.


Temporary alimony is awarded to unemployed or low-earning spouses to help cover living expenses during divorce proceedings

Limited Duration

Limited duration alimony is based on financial need. It is available for as long as it takes for the spouse to become self-sufficient.


If you gave up your career or any education opportunities during a long marriage so that you could care for your family, or to further your spouse's education or career, you may be entitled to permanent alimony. The court also takes into consideration a number of factors to determine qualifications and may award other support orders deemed appropriate in addition to a permanent order.


Intended to help you get back on your feet, rehabilitative alimony is meant to provide training and education so that you can support yourself after the term of the settlement has run out.


This type of alimony comes into play when a spouse has supported the other through advanced education. Reimbursement alimony compensates the spouse who was to take part in the marital benefits of that labor, but can no longer do so not due to the divorce.
