Questions About Spousal Support | What are the Different Types?
As a Saratoga Spousal Support Lawyer I am often asked about the different types of spousal maintenance. Under New York State Law we have two statues, the first is temporary spousal maintenance and is paid until the end of the divorce proceedings. The second order is post-judgment permanent spouse maintenance which provides maintenance after a judgement. I advise clients as a Saratoga Spousal Support Lawyer that Governor Cuomo is awaiting signature to order maintenance to be ordered pursuant to a formula which will contain a duration calculation.
Questions About Spousal Support | How Long Will It Last?
Temporary spousal maintenance is paid during the course of an action. Post-divorce maintenance is awarded by a court in the determination, as to the amount and duration, based upon consideration of factors that are in the Domestic Relations Law. In order to determine a duration, the court will consider how long someone will need to become self-sufficient, and any necessary education or training.
Questions About Spousal Support | What Factors Will Affect Payments?
The New York Domestic Relations Law sets out a number of factors to be considered, including: the parties’ standard of living, the income and property of the parties, marital assets, duration of the marriage, age and health of the parties, present and future earning capacity, children, tax consequences, and many others.
