NJ Rules for Maintenance Support

New Jersey Act P.L.2014, Chapter 42, approved September 10, 2014

If you have begun your divorce process, then you are aware that effective September 10, 2014, there is new legislature that changed the alimony rules and amended N.J.S.2A:34-23 for divorces from that date forward. The objective was to bring New Jersey’s support guidelines more in line with New York and Pennsylvania. In the opinion of Thomas Leustek, founder of New Jersey Alimony Reform, "Alimony is no longer forever, and recipients need to take measures to make sure they secure their future." See New Jersey Act P.L. 2014, Chapter 42 approved September 10, 2014.
