Will I Have To Support My Spouse In Brooklyn If I File For Divorce While They’re Unemployed?

Divorcing an unemployed spouse, especially when that spouse tends to have been the breadwinner in a marriage, can be a tricky financial situation, and we strongly encourage you to meet with an experienced divorce attorney to discuss the matter thoroughly.

How long your spouse has been unemployed, how much you earn, your spouse’s potential earning power.

The financial condition of your marriage over the last several years are all issues that will be important when it comes to whether you’ll have to pay spousal maintenance during and after the divorce.

There are a lot of factors that go into the financial equation of a divorce, and when one spouse is financially healthier than the other, it can actually hurt them in the long run.

The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you understand your situation better and build the right strategy for moving forward in your divorce.
