Law Lessons from KATHLEEN HENDRICKSON VS. MARK HENDRICKSON, App. Div., A-3604-11T3, November 5, 2012:

The Legislature has declared that the length of a limited duration alimony award may not be modified “except in unusual circumstances,” N.J.S.A. 2A:34-23(c), which requires a “heightened” showing, see Gonzalez-Posse v. Ricciardulli, 410 N.J. Super. 340, 356 (App. Div. 2009); Gordon v. Rozenwald, 380 N.J. Super. 55, 67 (App. Div. 2005).
