What are some fair reasons to request half of my husband's

What are some fair reasons to request half of my husband's 401k pension, we've been together 10 years married for 7 and he's been at his job for 13 years? I use to work prior to use having a child but then we agreed when I was pregnant that I would take a step back from working and focus on our child. I stayed home with her until she started preschool then I would work part time around our daughter's schedule but now I am currently unemployed.

I have a question regarding the new NJ permanent alimony

I have a question regarding the new NJ permanent alimony law. My husband got divorced before the new law went into effect and it was noted that any alimony before this was not affected at all. So my question - he has paid $19,240 a year for 10 years. He is retired and his annual income has decreased $30,000 and is now $40,000 after paying alimony. She works 4 hours a day driving a school bus with summers, holidays and weekends off. She has made no attempt to get a better job or increase her income and has gloated about the fact that she will be "screwing him the rest of his life" by making him pay. She received $266,000 10 years ago from QDRO and has received some compensation from her mother's estate after her passing. She makes about $19,000 on her own. She is also entitled to around $1,000 or more from his social security when she turns 62 this year. She plans to quit her job, live off of his alimony and the $1,000 plus her money from his pensions. He is hesitant to go to a lawyer about this because it will cost money he doesn't really have and judges always lean toward the ex-wife. Does he have any chance at all of getting this ridiculous amount reduced?
