If you work part time and your spouse is the primary earner in your household, then you should expect that a judge in Brooklyn will agree to a temporary maintenance order for the duration of your divorce.
Temporary maintenance is designed to ensure that the lower earning spouse has the resources to begin moving on when the marriage is ending, and give you time to make decisions like where to live, whether to change jobs or go back to school, and more.
In addition, lower earning spouses are often entitled to spousal maintenance after the divorce, usually for a period of years.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino make sure our clients’ needs are looked out for during and after the divorce.
