such that, “The public members appointed by the Governor would include at least two persons licensed to practice law in the State with a specialization in matrimonial
law, two persons who advocate for reform of the alimony
laws, one national expert on matrimonial law from
outside New Jersey, and at least one retired judge with
experience in the Superior Court, Chancery Division,
Family Part.”13 On June 18, 2012, the revised commission
bill was voted favorably out of committee.
On June 21, 2012, officers of the Family Law Section
descended upon Trenton during the party caucuses.
While there, the officers lobbied vociferously with the
resolution’s sponsors, seeking to amend the revised
commission bill in order to remove the inclusion of two
persons who advocate for reform and one national expert.
These efforts were successful. As a result, on June 21,
2012, AJR 32 and 36 was amended on the floor as follows:
5. eliminate the requirement that the public
members include two persons who advocate
for reform of the alimony laws and one
national expert on matrimonial law; and

6. provide that three of the public members
would be men and three would be women.
As amended, the joint resolution provides
that the six public members would include at
least two persons licensed to practice law in the
State with a specialization in matrimonial law
and at least one retired judge with experience in
the Superior Court, Chancery Division, Family
Part.14
Although this resolution passed the full Assembly
79-0 on June 25, 2012, the Senate would never address
the issue of a resolution.
For the next several months, the lobbying efforts of
the New Jersey State Bar Association and other groups
continued, advocating for passage of the commission and
otherwise explaining those areas of the alimony statute
that could benefit from review and reform. The lobbying
came in the form of face-to-face meetings, op-eds, meetings with members of the press and editorial boards, and
anyone else of influence who would listen. Concurrently,
the reform groups were likewise lobbying the Legislature,
and their efforts were increasing. Yet, the commission
resolution was not moving and the reform movement
seemed to have stalled.
Then, on March 7, 2013, the movement was reignited
when Assembly Bill 3909 was introduced. No longer satisfied with the creation of a commission, the reform groups
lobbied for changing the law without a commission. The
synopsis to the bill said it all, “Revises alimony laws,

including eliminating permanent alimony and establishing
guidelines for amount and duration of alimony awards.”15
This bill was nearly identical to the Massachusetts law,
including guidelines for the amount and term of alimony,
providing for retroactive application of these guidelines
to existing alimony obligations, eliminating permanent
alimony, and establishing a terminal date for alimony
upon the payor reaching full retirement age (defined as
“the date when the payor is eligible for the old-age retirement benefit under the federal Social Security Act”).16
With the introduction of this bill came a new and
revitalized wave of lobbying and press for the passage of
the new bill.17 The reform group publicized its position
through the newspaper, the Internet (including a website
and Facebook pages) and television. In addition, New
Jersey Alimony Reform and New Jersey Women for Alimony Reform commissioned a poll through Rutgers Eagleton
Center for Public Interest Polling, which was issued on
Oct. 8, 2013. Suddenly, the wave for reform seemed to be
increasing in intensity. The pressure for action in Trenton
on A-3909 was likewise increasing in intensity.
In response to A-3909, the MLA and NJSBA shifted
their focus, especially as it became clearer that the
creation of a commission would not occur. The result
was the creation of a proposed bill that addressed areas
of the alimony law that, in their view, required review,
revision and clarification. Those substantive areas of the
law included changes in circumstances, retirement and
cohabitation. Also importantly, any changes to the law
would not alter the terms of existing agreements between
parties. Once the proposed bill received the support of
the NJSBA, MLA and New Jersey Association for Justice
(NJAJ), as well as the other members of an ever-expanding coalition, it was necessary to find sponsors for this
new proposed legislation.
In the interim, the pressure from the reform
groups, and the sponsors of A-3909, resulted in A-3909
being posted on the agenda for the Assembly Judiciary
Committee on Nov. 25, 2013. Through lobbying efforts,
the bill was posted for discussion only; that is, there
would not be a vote in the committee on that day. Also,
just before the committee hearing, two sponsors were
