In 2014, the State of New Jersey amended its alimony statute that made more clear when alimony may be modified or terminated. As a result, alimony modification and termination motions made postjudgment have become more frequent and the New Jersey State Family Courts have in turn created a more defined process as to how they will deal with them. It is likely that any postjugment motion will be pushed to a plenary hearing, a mini-trial of sorts where the parties present evidence and give testimony.
If you have questions regarding alimony termination or modification, from the obligor or obligee perspective, please call Green & Associates at 732-390-0480 or 201-242-1119 to speak with our experienced NJ divorce lawyer. We offer free consultations and appointments at night and on weekends for your convenience in our two offices in East Brunswick and Fort Lee.
Prior to the plenary hearing, the parties will engage in discovery that has been scheduled by the Court.
