If your ex has not complied with an order to pay child support, you may file a motion to enforce litigant’s rights and have the appropriate probation division implement an income withholding — support payments that are automatically paid to you from your ex’s pay. The court also has the discretion to order other remedies that may include:
The purpose of child support is to support the child(ren). In most cases, the amount of child support is based upon the Child Support Guidelines.
The purpose of alimony is to provide support for a former spouse. Under New Jersey law, there is no formula to determine the amount or duration of alimony. Alimony is based on a number of factors that are set forth in a statute. These factors include, but are not limited to, the standard of living that was established during the marriage and whether each party can maintain a reasonably comparable lifestyle after the divorce, the length of the marriage, and the earning capabilities of the parties.
