Palimony is designed to support the less financially advantaged party in the dissolution of a domestic relationship. The most common occurrence is when one party gives up a career to tend to the home and family needs of the parties while the other is allowed to build up his or her career, business and wealth.
In 2010, the Statute of Frauds in New Jersey was amended to require a written agreement between parties in order for the promise of lifetime support, or palimony, to be enforceable. There has been subsequent case law addressing the retroactivity of the statute, or applying the Statute of Frauds to agreements made before it was enacted and, thus, the future of palimony claims in New Jersey continues to be an evolving area of the law.
