This bill would prohibit an award of alimony to a person convicted of a crime or offense involving domestic violence by the victim of that crime or offense. If the recipient of an existing alimony award is subsequently convicted of a crime or offense involving domestic violence against the payer spouse or partner, such conviction would constitute "changed circumstances" for the purposes of a petition to terminate the alimony award. As defined in section 3 of P.L.1991, c.261 (C.2C:25-19), the acts that constitute domestic violence are: homicide; assault; terroristic threats; kidnapping; criminal restraint; false imprisonment; sexual assault; criminal sexual contact; lewdness; criminal mischief; burglary; criminal trespass; harassment; and stalking.
