It seems like a simple question, but it’s hard to find a simple answer. I am filing a claim for Post Separation Support, and at a later date Alimony. I am the dependant spouse, having been laid off from my job in the IT industry, while my wife continues on as a nurse. My only means of income currently is unemployment benefits amounting to about $8900/yr, while her salary is in excess of $52,000/yr. How is a reasonable support payment calculated?
Not sure if it makes a difference. but I am in Union county.
