Former New Jersey Governor Won’t Owe His Ex-Wife Alimony

By Sheryl Rentz on August 20, 2008

Former New Jersey Governor James E. McGreevey will not owe his ex-wife, Dina Matos-McGreevey, any alimony, a judge has ruled, according to an Associated Press news report. The couple’s divorce is through after an eight-year marriage, which collapsed when McGreevey announced that he was gay. McGreevey resigned in 2004 after he admitted to having an affair with a male staffer, although the staffer alleged that he was sexually harassed by the governor. The couple separated the following year.

A superior court judge ruled McGreevey must pay $250 a week or $1,075 a month in child support for their 6-year-old daughter. The couple has shared custody of the child. Matos has asked for $2,500 a month in alimony for four years and $1,750 a month in child support. McGreevey, who is now a student, testified during the divorce trial that he is now too poor to pay alimony.

Alimony, child support and child custody are the most contentious issues in any divorce proceeding. Each couple’s divorce is different, the circumstances are different as are their economic standings and assets. How much alimony is paid and who pays whom hinges on these factors as well the determination made by the family court.

Whatever your situation may be, the success of your divorce case depends on the experience and competence your Pennsylvania alimony lawyer brings to the table.
