Serving places in the NJ state area

Licensed in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Michigan


Alimony, also known as spousal support, is available in some divorce cases, typically when one spouse has stayed out of the workforce during the marriage in order to take care of the family home, raise the couple’s children, or otherwise contribute to the household.

Our alimony attorneys help clients resolve spousal support issues in their divorce cases. We will advise you on whether you are likely to receive or to have to pay alimony and help you pursue the outcome you deserve. Our divorce lawyers are familiar with the approaches taken by the courts in past alimony cases, and we use that information to help our clients negotiate beneficial results. When negotiations are not successful, we are fully prepared to litigate spousal support issues in family court.

A family law attorney can discuss the criterion for awarding alimony and provide any advocacy that may be needed to help you secure the financial assistance that you need. Every case is different and should be analyzed by an attorney knowledgable and experienced in Family Law matters.

Our firm works closely with clients when developing a divorce plan, and will diligently protect your rights to alimony. The extensive legal knowledge and experience of our attorneys can be a tremendous asset when you have specific divorce objectives.

At the office of attorney Joseph P. Howard, I have fought for the rights of men and women in Camden County, Burlington County, Gloucester County, Salem County and Atlantic County, Voorhees, Cherry Hill and the greater Philadelphia area for more than 30 years. With more than three decades of legal experience handling legal disputes, including divorce and family law matters, I have comprehensive knowledge of the laws and procedures governing divorce and family law, including requests for modification.

Whether you are concerned about receiving as much alimony as the law allows or minimizing your exposure to your alimony obligation, our attorneys can help you understand your options and pursue your goals. For a free consultation, contact my office using the form below or call us at (856) 282-1318
