When a couple gets a divorce, they have many issues to address. Sometimes, these issues can be heated and accordingly, contested. Alimony can be a very emotional issue to resolve as both parties have an opinion on what they are entitled to and they often do not agree. Based on the financial needs of the individual and the earning capacity of both parties in a divorce, the court might award one of the different types of alimony offered in court cases. In most situations, alimony, also known as spousal support, can be modified as circumstances change. Do not hesitate to contact a Sparta attorney at the Paris P. Eliades Law Firm, LLC to learn more about your rights regarding spousal support.

Mediation may help resolve alimony issues
New Jersey courts work towards a fair and just structure. They will take into consideration factors from both sides when deciding on the matter. Some couples are able to put their emotions aside in order to settle this issue outside of court. Through mediation, couples may be able to agree to terms that would otherwise be ordered by a judge. Couples usually can accept the outcome because the fate of their arrangement is in their hands and not a court’s. Mediation can save you time and legal costs.
