Understanding the Importance of Spousal Support
Spousal support, also known as spousal maintenance or alimony, of which there are two types, temporary and permanent, requires the higher-earning spouse to pay support to the lower-earning spouse. Temporary maintenance is to be used during the time when a divorce proceeding has not yet been finalized. You can also file for permanent spousal maintenance which can be awarded post-divorce judgment.
When determining the need for spousal support, the court may consider the following:
- The income and property of both spouses
- The length of the marriage
- The age, health, and fitness of both spouses
- How much both spouses can earn for a living
- The educational level of both spouses
Spousal support will be a tremendous financial responsibility for both payee and payor, and it is crucial to realize the importance of adhering to a support agreement. Failing to pay a monthly support obligation can jeopardize the ability for your former spouse to provide for your children and could have both civil and criminal repercussions, including a lawsuit or even a bench warrant for arrest.
We Work Toward Fair Resolutions. Call Our Attorneys Today!
When it comes to spousal support, consulting a legal professional will be a critical step in obtaining a fair court order. If the court steps in and orders spousal support to be paid, the court order could pose a significant financial burden on a payor, especially if the payor was expecting a different outcome. Having represented many men and women throughout New York, we know how to protect your rights and seek a fair resolution.
