Spousal support, also known as alimony, can be a great help to maintain your quality of life after a divorce. There are many factors that go into making maintenance determinations and ultimately, the court decides on a case-by-case basis. It is important that you have effective advocacy presenting relevant evidence on your behalf.
At HD Family Law Group, we our New York divorce attorneys work hard to help you. Contact us today to learn more about your options.
Whether you are seeking temporary or more permanent maintenance, judges look at a variety of issues to decide whether alimony is appropriate and how much is necessary.
The court will decide on payments based on any of the following issues:
Temporary maintenance payments stop when the divorce enters final judgement. This can help you during the process as well as to assist you with transitioning back to single life. Permanent alimony payments, on the other hand, end at a specific date agreed upon in the divorce order, when the spouse receiving payments remarries, or when either spouse dies.
Alimony can also be modified or terminated, such as when a spouse gets a better paying job, if a spouse loses their job, or if there are other severe financial issues that need to be addressed.
Whether you are seeking temporary maintenance or a permanent order, call HD Family Law Group at 888.353.5193 to schedule a consultation.
