New Jersey Alimony Lawyers
Ensuring Your Interests Are Protected
When you and your spouse divorce, there are a number of decisions you need to make that will have a long-term impact on your standard of living. One of the decisions the New Jersey courts generally make on behalf of those involved is whether or not you are required to provide or receive alimony, regular monetary contributions also known as spousal support or spousal maintenance. Tanya L. Freeman, Esq. has a seasoned familiarity with spousal maintenance.
Alimony is one of the most frequently litigated issues in divorce, and while courts and lawyers strive to split marital assets equitably, equitable does not necessarily mean equal, and a share of your marital property might not, on its own, guarantee your financial security. In many cases, alimony should be part of that equation. Our dedicated team will always work to reach a fair agreement between our client and the opposing party.
Experienced in negotiating and litigating alimony agreements
When determining whether or not a court should gran alimony, how much should be awarded, and for how long it should continue, New Jersey courts carefully appraise a couple’s length of marriage, their standard of living during the marriage, the relative income of each individual, and the needs of each spouse. Retaining an experienced New Jersey alimony lawyer can help you persuade the court that you need support. Alternatively, an attorney can also work to persuade the court that your ex-spouse does not need spousal support, or needs less than he or she asked for.
Working for your peace of mind
Tanya L. Freeman, Esq. and her team represent clients who are seeking alimony as well as those who would be required to pay it. Clients are often concerned about whether they are required to pay alimony if their circumstances change. Others are not receiving the alimony payments specified by the agreement and seek enforcement. A dedicated alimony attorney can help you present evidence to the court as to why the amount you pay should be decreased, or request that the court properly enforce the alimony agreement.
