What You Need To Know About Spousal Maintenance

When a couple separates, it can be tremendously difficult to split finances. Each party may have an idea of what they are entitled to, and it can be tough to reach an amicable solution. For 35 years, our founding attorney Lee A. Rubenstein has helped clients throughout New York. We understand the complexities you are facing.

What Should I Take Into Consideration?

Deciding whether or not spousal support is necessary is not always easy. It is even more difficult for those in high-asset divorces. With more up for grabs, there is more that is at stake. That being said, there are laws and regulations put into place that must be followed. The purpose of spousal support is to make sure each party can maintain their standard of living. These decisions can be made without the help of a judge; however, proper legal guidance from an alimony attorney is important.

Whether you go to court or not, there are many things that must be taken into consideration, including:

  • The health of each party
  • The duration of the marriage
  • Each spouse’s earning capacity

The difference between each party’s current income is the best way to decide what is fair. Our job is to listen to your concerns with compassion. We then tailor a solution that is unique to your needs and move forward. We will always represent your best interests throughout the duration of our time together.
