Alimony, also known as spousal support, is a crucial component of many divorce settlements. Its purpose is to help the lower-earning spouse maintain their standard of living, ensuring they can meet their daily living expenses. However, the misuse of alimony payments through spousal support fraud is a growing concern. At Cowan Investigations, we specialize in Alimony Relief and are committed to helping those who suspect their ex-spouse may be committing spousal support fraud.
Understanding Alimony and Its Importance
Alimony and child support are often confused, but they serve distinct purposes. While child support focuses on providing for the children’s financial needs, alimony addresses the financial disparity between the two former spouses. Alimony payments are meant to help the lower-earning spouse maintain their pre-divorce standard of living. Unfortunately, some individuals exploit the alimony system, using these payments for purposes other than their intended use or cohabitating with a new partner while still receiving alimony.
New Jersey Alimony Law Reform
Prior to 2014, New Jersey’s alimony laws had remained largely unchanged, and reducing or stopping alimony payments was a challenging process. The 2014 bill brought much-needed reform, particularly in the area of cohabitation. Under the new law, even if the recipient of alimony maintains a separate residence from their new partner, cohabitation can still be proven, potentially resulting in the revocation of alimony payments.
