Spousal Maintenance in New York
Unlike child support, alimony or spousal maintenance is not determined by a set formula. New York courts take into account factors which vary from case to case when a dependent spouse seeks support from a economically superior spouse in a marital separation or divorce.
Discuss the particulars of your divorce or separation with a lawyer who knows how to protect your rights and advocate strongly in support of your best interests, whether you are the spouse seeking spousal maintenance or whether you are being asked to support your soon-to-be-ex-spouse.
