Former spouses may receive alimony in New Jersey; former partners may receive palimony in New Jersey; children indirectly receive child support; and now unborn children and their mothers may be able to receive preglimony in New Jersey. “Preglimony?” you ask. Is this even a word, perhaps a spoonerism or mash-up of some kind? If you Google it, the search engine will auto-complete the suffix of the word for you if you make it to p-r-e-g-l, so someone must have searched for it before you did.
