New Jersey’s “new” alimony statute has several gray areas, even after seven years, including whether the statute’s subsections have retroactive applications.

Matheu D. Nunn, a Partner and Co-Chair of Einhorn Barbarito Frost & Botwinick PC’s Family Law Practice, co-authored an article in the New Jersey Law Journal’s special Family Law section providing an overview of New Jersey alimony statute’s subsection dealing with modifying alimony obligations and reviewing legislative history in an attempt to determine the issue of retroactivity regarding non-self-employed spouses seeking alimony modifications

The article notes that while the court is able to address each unique factual situation, there are varying approaches to the issue throughout the state and hopefully “the Appellate Division and the Supreme Court have opportunities to answer the retroactivity question in published decisions.”
