Alimony payments in New Jersey
Alimony is the amount of money one party in a divorce pays the other to ensure that their standard of living can be maintained after their marriage has ended. Temporary support, sometimes called pendente lite support is money paid by one spouse to the other while their divorce goes through the court. Temporary support is designed to maintain the status quo that existed prior to the institution of divorce proceedings. Both alimony and temporary support can be paid directly or through New Jersey Probation. Alimony in most cases is taxable to the party receiving it and deductable to the payor, while temporary support is usually non-taxable. On Wednesday, September 10, 2014, Gov. Christie signed legislation eliminating permanent alimony in NJ. This marks a MAJOR change in NEW Jersey Alimony law – I encourage you to read the new post in my blog for further information.
