Caring Alimony Attorney Looking Out for Your Best Interests

Dedicated lawyer seeking fair spousal support arrangements for clients in the Cape May County area

When you and your spouse divorce, there are a number of decisions that will have a long-term impact on your quality of life. Whether you and your partner try to negotiate an agreement on your own or litigate in a New Jersey court, the question of whether alimony should be provided can be quite stressful. As a family law attorney, I have extensive knowledge of the laws governing spousal support and represent parties seeking payments as well as those who are being asked to provide them. No matter the particular circumstances, I will work diligently to achieve an appropriate result for my clients in the Cape May County area.

Compassionate New Jersey advocates assisting with alimony negotiations and litigation

When determining whether or not alimony should be granted, how much should be awarded and for how long, judges appraise various factors: the length of the couple’s marriage, their standard of living during the marriage, the relative income of each individual, and the needs of each spouse. Retaining a knowledgeable, experienced alimony attorney can help you make a compelling case that you need support, increasing the chance that alimony will be awarded. Alternatively, I can also work to convince the judge that your ex does not need spousal support or needs less than he or she asked for. I advise clients on the types of alimony that are relevant to their divorce, which may include:

  • Temporary alimony — Meant to provide support during divorce proceedings, temporary alimony helps recipient spouses address their financial needs until the case is resolved.
  • Rehabilitative alimony — To help a dependent spouse acquire or re-establish the skills they need to become self-reliant, rehabilitative alimony can granted. This support may end when enough time has passed for the recipient to find a suitable job or complete their education.
  • Reimbursement alimony –These payments might be awarded to the spouse who worked, took care of the home or made other contributions while their spouse pursued professional training or career development.
  • Open durational alimony — Open durational alimony may be given to a spouse who is seriously ill or who is unable for another reason to earn enough income to maintain their standard of living. It is more likely to exist at the end of a long marriage where one party didn’t work outside the home. These orders are frequently modified due to changing financial needs or other circumstances.

At the law office of Lisa M. Radell, Esq. , I will work with you to determine what type(s) of alimony might be granted in your situation. From there, we’ll develop a sound strategy designed to secure the best result possible.

Empathetic attorney considering your financial needs and striving for your peace of mind

At the law office of Lisa M. Radell, Esq., I represent clients who are seeking alimony as well as those who will be required to pay it. My clients are often concerned about whether they are required to pay alimony if their circumstances change. Others come to me if they are not receiving the alimony payments specified by the agreement. I 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 existing alimony agreement. My goal is to ensure a fair result that protects your standard of living.
