Caring New Jersey Alimony Attorney Looks Out for Your Best Interests

Dedicated lawyer seeks fair spousal support arrangements for clients

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. At the Law Office of Edward R. Wiercinski, 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 work diligently to achieve an appropriate result for clients in across New Jersey.

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 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 other party 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: (also known as Pendente Lite): 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 be 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 without a firm end date, typically found in New Jersey for marriages lasting at minimum 20 years or more.
  • Limited Durational: alimony with a firm end date, addresses spouses needs at the end of a relatively short-term marriage.

At the Law Office of Edward R. Wiercinski, I will work with you to determine what type(s) of alimony might be granted in your situation. From there, I'll develop a sound strategy designed to secure the best result possible.

Empathetic attorney considers your financial needs and strives for your peace of mind

At the Law Office of Edward R. Wiercinski, 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, increased, 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.
