NEW JERSEY DIVORCE-MY SPOUSE DOES NOT WORK! HOW MUCH ALIMONY MUST I PAY?

View from a divorce lawyer in New Jersey concerning what some men and women call the freedom tax-ALIMONY—-You may get mad, you may be angry after you read this or you may be slightly relieved as to how much alimony you must pay to your spouse in New Jersey or if you are the dependent spouse, how much you can obtain in a New Jersey divorce court. As it depends on a case by case basis and alimony is not automatic in any divorce in New Jersey, as a Jersey City divorce lawyer that handles both contested and amicable divorces, I will explain the key factors in determining how much if any alimony you may have to pay because of the divorce.

First, lets assume your case is a case that can be deemed an alimony case. A case where there is a significant income gap between the spouses and that the marriage is more than 2 years (2 years is not the starting point by law, alimony can be awarded in shorter marriages and in some cases will not be awarded in marriages lasting only two years).

Ok, so you have an alimony case. For example you earn $150,000 per year and your spouse does not work. Your spouse has not worked the entire marriage. However, prior to your marriage, your spouse earned $75,000 per year or even if your spouse did not work and has the ability to work a certain job because he or she has a Masters Degree from Rutgers University (My Law School Alma Mater). What we would do then is seek employment statistics and/or use the United States Census data for the Northeast region to come up with a reasonable imputed income to use for the alimony and/or child support calculations because the court will not use zero for your spouse’s income especially if the marriage is less than 20 years. So, let us stay with $75,000. Again, while there is no absolute calculation, the court will try to see how the parties lived (to come up with or understand the economic lifestyle led). This is essentially the household budget, entertainment, a savings component, etc. Due to this, the alimony number can range dramatically but lets use what many call the “rule of thumb 1/3 rule.” This essentially means if you subtract your spouses 75k from your 150k, leaving 75,000 which you multiply by 33% and that will give you a round about number as to how much alimony may be. Again, alimony is not automatic, there are ways around alimony if you have assets but if you do not want to give more assets away and there is a sizable income gap, it could be an alimony case in reality. Now, alimony is a tax deduction for the payor and the more alimony you pay, the less child support you will pay which is a straight calculation (New Jersey Child Support Guidelines).

5 WAYS TO ACHIEVE THE SEAMLESS DIVORCE IN NEW JERSEY NJ

From Jersey City Divorce and Family Law Attorney Santo Artusa——-Einstein taught me how to achieve the seamless/no fault/uncontested divorce in New Jersey Family-Divorce Courts. And as you would suspect, genius lives in simplicity. As a Hudson County divorce lawyer representing people from Jersey City, North Bergen, Bayonne, Union City, Hoboken, Newark, Kearny, North Arlington, Elizabeth, Union, New Brunswick, Somerset and beyond, I know which courts offer the easiest divorces and which courts are slower and have more archaic methods. For instance did you know that certain New Jersey Family Courts do not require an appearance in court if you know what you are doing? Hudson and Somerset are just two counties that permit divorce on the papers (aka a divorce without going to court). We handle hundreds of these divorce cases each year, especially in Hudson County, New Jersey. Our satisfied clients have sent us countless referrals because of our work and knowledge of the Hudson County divorce courts and judges.

The first step in a divorce is really telling your spouse that you are going to file (this is much easier in cases where both parties already want this, the parties no longer live together as husband and wife, spouse and spouse). By doing this, there is no surprise which could lead to a major civil paper-divorce assault for no reason, so it is best to deal with it with kid’s gloves if it is an amicable divorce and mutual decision.

The second step would be either getting the terms of the divorce agreement down in writing or filing for the divorce in the New Jersey Superior Court-Family Part (Each County has one). One you file for the divorce, you will get a docket or case number. Your spouse will then need to sign for that or sign that he or she agrees to the terms listed in the divorce complaint or you have a marital/property settlement agreement.

The third step would be to file that paper which must be signed and notarized (acknowledgment of service) with the court. After that is done, you can file for a default and submit the next series of documents and the actual proposed final divorce judgment. Again, if you do it right in certain counties, you will never have to go to court and appear in a family law courtroom. My team and I know how to obtain that divorce or annulment for you in a seamless and limited stress fashion (we cannot control everything but we strive to make this as easy as possible for you and your spouse).

If you face a family law issue, domestic abuse, restraining orders, child custody, divorce, annulments or any other family law issue in Hudson County, New Jersey or beyond, contact my team on 201-706-7910 to discuss your situation further. Until then, thank you and Have a safe 4th of July! God Bless America!
