In a divorce that involves a business, how is support determined?

Let’s relate this to both child support and alimony, which is also known as spousal support. In New Jersey alimony is addressed under the factors that are set forth under the alimony reform act. The first step would be to determine the standard of living of the marriage and we do that by disclosure of such things as a case information statement, which reflects the expenses of the parties monthly and separately if they have already separated. The court looks at the needs of the supportive spouse and the ability of the supporting spouse to pay among other factors such as the duration of the marriage, the age of the parties, and their respective physical health as well as other equitable factors.
