Changes proposed to alimony laws in New Jersey.

New laws in the New Jersey Assembly could possibly completely change the alimony laws in the state.

The first proposed law asked for an 11-member commission be created in order to review all of the laws and possibly reform them. Another bill that was cleared earlier this week states that the alimony and child support payments can be changed if a person who owes the money has a significant change in income such as unemployment or temporary disability.

Another proposed legislation asks to put an end to the lifetime alimony payments that are ordered by the court. The current New Jersey law states that no matter how long the marriage, lifetime alimony can be set and there are no set rules on payments changing with retirement or remarriage.

If you or a loved one has not been receiving the alimony that you deserve, contact the Monmouth County alimony lawyers of Andrew A. Bestafkas, Esq, by calling (732) 898-2378  today and discussing your legal options.
