2. Child support

New Jersey support or as it is commonly called spousal maintenance or alimony, can be either permanent or temporary.

It can also be paid in a onetime lump sum, division of assets, or in monthly installments.

Regardless of method, there are ways to lessen your New Jersey support load.

In order to take advantage of the system, you first must understand how the system really works.
