There are actually five different types of alimony available to divorcing couples in New Jersey. One of these types is called open duration alimony, which was previously known as "permanent" alimony. Open duration alimony was reformed by the 2014 New Jersey Alimony Amendment Act, setting forth some changes in regulation which may have a material impact on New Jersey residents. This alimony amendment not only changed which couples are eligible for open duration alimony, but also how and when they can make changes to existing alimony agreements.
