Often married couples contemplating divorce will reach a separation agreement. This agreement will divide some or all property among the two parties, establish a child custody arrangement, and determine if there will be any spousal support.

In the State of New Jersey, spousal support (alimony) is based upon the financial resources and needs of the parties, the division of assets is based upon equitable distribution. There is no automatic formula to divide property between husband and wife. Instead, property such as homes and pension plans are divided based on factors including the length of the marriage, the financial situation of the parties, and the age of the parties.

Therefore, in a short term marriage, 1 to 3 years, spousal support is usually not awarded, however an equitable distribution of assets may be necessary. The longer a couple has been married the less you have to show who contributed to the asset, all assets are considered to be commingled.

Sometimes asset division is difficult to determine because one of the spouses has hidden assets. In these instances investigators may be hired to locate the hidden assets. In addition, an experienced accountant may be retained to perform business and asset valuations.
