Durational support in Brooklyn divorces is a time-limited form of spousal maintenance that typically lasts for a period of several years.
One factor in determining whether durational support will be awarded, and for how long, is the length of the marriage.
The ages and health status of the spouses matter as well. In a marriage where one party sacrificed educational or professional opportunities, durational support may allow that person to get a degree, finish grad school, or re-establish themselves in their career.
At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we understand the importance of protecting your bottom line while you step back into your life independently.
Durational maintenance is one way to achieve your professional goals while ensuring that your standard of living isn’t dramatically reduced at the end of the your marriage.
