Ocean County Alimony Lawyer

At the Law Office of Sarina Gianna, LLC, I work with individuals going through divorce to represent their interests and protect their financial futures. Alimony, also called spousal support, is often a hotly contested issue during divorce. As a divorce lawyer, I strive to help resolve these matters so both spouses can move on with their lives.

In some cases, we may be able to negotiate an alimony buyout in the divorce agreement. To achieve that, one spouse gives up certain assets in exchange for a release from future alimony obligations. When this is an option, both spouses can benefit. One gets a larger amount of marital assets up front while the other does not need to worry about making future alimony payments.

Determining Alimony In A New Jersey Divorce

Each case is unique but, generally, the longer a marriage lasts and the more disparate the spouses' respective incomes are, the longer alimony payments will last. There are several types of alimony in New Jersey that may be awarded during a divorce:

  • Term alimony lasts for a certain amount of time, to be agreed upon by the parties or ordered by a court.
  • Permanent alimony refers to alimony payments that must be made for the foreseeable future. In some cases, it is possible to modify an order to change or end permanent alimony obligations.
  • Rehabilitative alimony is designed to support one spouse while he or she becomes self-sufficient, whether by finding a job or going through vocational training.

As an experienced Ocean County alimony attorney, I can help you determine what types of alimony may be appropriate for your case and pursue a fair order.
