Negotiate an Alimony Agreement that Works for You

If you are going to be the one receiving alimony in New Jersey, your view on the topic is likely considerably different from your ex’s opinion. After all, you need enough money to survive and want enough money to be able to live the life you have become accustomed to living.

On the other hand, chances are, the person paying the alimony wants to pay the least amount possible. That may be understandable because they also want to be able to pay their bills and enjoy a quality of life.

Whenever finances are discussed during divorce negotiations, stress and frustration soon follow. After all, you are dividing up assets and debts. It’s unlikely your bills will be reduced; in fact, one of you will probably incur additional housing costs. Plus, there’s food and furniture and the daily costs of living to consider.

How are you both supposed to make it – and take care of your children – when there will be two households to support instead of one? This is a difficult question to answer and one that certainly requires the guidance of an experience divorce lawyer.

The vast majority of people don’t really know what goes into negotiating alimony. To many, it’s just a word that exists until they are facing divorce. Alimony, also called spousal support, can be ordered for the long term or for a limited time.

Your family court judge will make that final decision based on a variety of factors including: ability to pay vs. financial need, length of the marriage, age of the parties, standard of living established during the marriage and earning potential of the spouses, and others. Your lawyer will help you to make sure your interests are protected when alimony is being negotiated.

At Graziano & Flynn, P.C., in Cherry Hill New Jersey, we fight to protect the lifestyle you’ve grown accustomed to throughout your marriage, whether you are the party obligated to pay or the party receiving the support. Contact us today for a consultation about your situation.

Client Reviews
Mr. Graziano had my best interests in mind when he represented me. He is clearly knowledgeable and handled my divorce quickly and efficiently. I'd hire him if I ever found myself needing a divorce lawyer again. Nadia
Attorney Graziano is one of the brightest and most compassionate professionals which anyone could work with! He is a great advocate and is extremely knowledgable of the judicial system. He made a very unpleasant legal situation a pleasant journey, and he helped keep things in perspective and in a positive light. I fully recommend him without reservation! Danielle
Hiring the right attorney to represent your divorce case is one of the most important decisions you will ever make! I was fortunate enough to hire Ron to handle my case and had what I believe to be a favorable outcome. I based my opinion on achieving the goals we set in the beginning of the case and comparing my final outcomes to friends and colleagues that went through the process with other attorneys. Thank you Ron! Craig
It seemed like my case took forever but I trusted Ron Grazaino and listened to what he had to say. Mr Graziano said that the insurance company was not being fair and that we should go to trial. The trial was very nerve racking however he eased my mind and killed them with proof and knowledge. My outcome of my trial brought me to tears of joy. I could never imagine such a good outcome. Listen to him, have faith and you too will be impressed. Robin

His staff is amazing as well!!
