New Jersey Supreme Court Wrestles with Application of New Alimony Law

A matrimonial matter involving the issue of an appropriate alimony award will be decided by the Supreme Court. The matter involves a fifteen year marriage between two parties who are in their early forties. After a trial, the trial court determined that the wife should receive alimony for a term of eleven years. On appeal, the Appellate Division reversed the trial court's award of an eleven year term and remanded the matter back to the trial court for consideration of an award of permanent alimony. Now the Supreme Court must determine the appropriate term of alimony. Even though the matter had been long under way by the time New Jersey's new alimony statute was passed, the Supreme Court must also decide whether to apply the new statute to this matter.
