Albany Family Law Attorney Discusses a Spousal Maintenance Extension
I’m already divorced and I’ve been collecting alimony/spousal support. It ends in February 2016. Can I get a extension on my alimony? Because I’m not able to work and I’ve been waiting on disability.
I have advised clients as an Albany Family Law Attorney that it is possible to modify the terms of your Judgment of Divorce to extend the maintenance obligation. The Domestic Relations Law permits it upon a showing of “extreme hardship.” You should consult with an Albany Family Law Attorney to determine whether or not your circumstances qualify. He or she will need to assess the facts and circumstances at the time you were divorced and what changes have occurred, if any, in your financial situation since that time.
