The loudest proponent of alimony reform in New Jersey has been Tom Leustek, a professor at Rutgers and the co-founder of the grassroots organization, "New Jersey Alimony Reform."

On January 26, 2012, Mr. Leustek published an article in New Jersey.Com. The article suggests that alimony is routinely awarded on a permanent and unfair basis in the state. It is Mr. Leustek's opinion that the court isn't granting warranted modifications based on salary reductions or other significant changes in the parties' circumstances.

Thomas Leustek - founder of New Jersey Alimony Reform - said it's an "about-face" for New Jersey, even if doesn't go as far as he'd like it to.

"I'm overjoyed that he signed the bill, because it turns the existing laws of alimony completely around," Leustek, a plant biology professor at Rutgers, said in a phone interview.
Leustek said the biggest change is that the elimination of a presumption that alimony should be permanent.
"The prior law ... has what I refer to as the permanent first doctrine. A judge would have to explain why permanent alimony was inappropriate if they decided to award some other kind of alimony. Imagine that," Leustek said.

The proposed New Jersey Alimony Reform ... [cached]

The proposed New Jersey Alimony Reform Bill has been in the works for about 2½ years, said Thomas Leustek, who founded the reform movement.

Leustek, a plant biology professor at Rutgers University, said he was affected by state's current alimony laws.
Although Leustek's ex-wife was a successful psychologist with a thriving practice who didn't need additional money from him, Leustek said, a judge ordered him to pay her $3,000 a month indefinitely.
"The greatest problem is that the laws that were written were quite vague - everything was left entirely up to a judge," Leustek said.
Leustek said New Jersey is far more generous with alimony payments than either New York or Pennsylvania. In New York, people typically pay alimony for half the length of a marriage, and in Pennsylvania they typically pay for a third of the length.
Anything beyond that can be decided by a judge, Leustek said, but in New Jersey, "permanent" is the norm, he said.

Mainor introduced his bill after being lobbied by a group formed by Rutgers University biology professor Tom Leustek.

Leustek was ordered to pay $2,000 per month in alimony to his former wife, who has a doctorate in psychology. Leustek said that the award was based on a "snapshot" of her income at a time when it was low, and failed to look at her income over the course of the couple's 24-year marriage.
