The Basics Of Spousal Support In New York

There are two types of post-divorce spousal maintenance in New York State: nondurational or durational. There are also temporary spousal support payments. If you are a dependent spouse, you want to ensure that you collect the full amount of support you are entitled to. Similarly, if you are the primary wage earner, you want to protect yourself against unmanageable payment obligations. Our firm can advocate for your support interests during divorce and afterward.

Beyond the maintenance guidelines, there are many factors that go into making maintenance determinations. Ultimately, the court decides on a case-by-case basis. It is important that you have effective advocacy presenting relevant evidence on your behalf.
