Nassau County Alimony Attorney

Alimony Attorney Also Serving Queens

New York law allows for an ex-spouse to continue to be supported by the other spouse after the dissolution of the marriage. This is referred to as maintenance in New York. Originally, maintenance was only collected by the ex-wife. However, today, either husband or wife can receive maintenance, based on the applicable circumstances. The amount of maintenance depends upon several factors, including, but not limited to:

  • Duration of the marriage
  • Financial resources of each party
  • Physical and emotional condition of each party
  • Age of each party
  • Standard of living during the marriage
