How does a NJ court determine for how long alimony is to be paid?

  • In a general sense, if you’re married for a longer period of time, the alimony will last for a longer period of time.
  • If it’s a very short-term marriage, pursuant to the alimony statute it is not permitted to last for longer than the term of the marriage and is often for a period shorter than the term of the marriage.
