What is a Wife Entitled to in a Divorce in NJ?

In a divorce in New Jersey, a wife is entitled to several things, including:

  • Property division: The judge will separate the property somewhat, taking into account all of the relevant details, for example, the length of the marriage, any contributions of each spouse, and the necessities of any children.
  • Child support: If a child is included in a divorce, a judge will demand one parent to pay child support to the other parent.
  • Alimony: The family court will consider several details when deciding whether to award alimony, such as the marriage length, income, and the needs of each spouse.
  • Medical insurance: If one spouse has health insurance through their employer, the court may order the other spouse to be added to the insurance policy. This is usually done if the other spouse does not have health insurance or if their health insurance could be better.
  • Retirement benefits: If one spouse has retirement benefits, for example, a pension or 401(k), the judge may order the other spouse to be entitled to a share of the benefits. This is usually done if the other spouse has contributed to the help during the marriage.

It is necessary to be aware that these are just some things a wife may be entitled to in a Monmouth County, New Jersey, divorce. The specific circumstances of each divorce case will determine what the wife is entitled to.
