Men – Know Your Rights Regarding Alimony

There are a few stats out there that are pointing to the fact that things are not equal among men and women in the alimony (spousal support) world.

In New Jersey, there is a disproportionate number of men not receiving alimony. However, this number is changing because there are over 400,000 people in the United States receiving alimony, and a mere 3% of these are to men.Today 40% of households have the woman earning a higher income than the man.

Unfortunately, men are many times unaware that they can even get alimony. It was in 1979 that laws were changed deeming it unconstitutional for only women to receive alimony. This being said, however, doesn’t change the fact that some men, because of pride, would never seek alimony. Because both men and woman have full-time jobs, there has been an overall decrease in alimony in the past few years.
