Yes, spousal maintenance can be structured in a variety of ways, and in a divorce where one spouse may have worked to put the other through school, for instance, it may make sense to use spousal maintenance to support that spouse while they complete their education and move into higher paying jobs.
This is especially true for younger people who still have a number of earning years ahead of them.
There are many ways to structure your support agreement in a divorce, but the key to a good agreement is effective negotiation that takes into account each spouse’s contributions to the marriage and each spouse’s needs going forward.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino know how to bridge the divides that couples face at the end of a marriage and get agreements that protect our clients.
