You are absolutely entitled to spousal maintenance in Brooklyn if you are a man, assuming that you and your spouse meet the financial requirements for maintenance to be awarded.
If your spouse earns more than you do and divorce will leave you substantially impoverished for the foreseeable future, then spousal maintenance is an achievable goal.
What the court looks at isn’t your gender, but rather the economic situation of each spouse, and the impact that divorce will have on both.
Many women are the primary earners in Brooklyn households, and many men receive spousal maintenance following a divorce so that they have time to get back on their feet.
Finding a fair, financially sustainable resolution to the monetary elements of divorce is a key component in any marital split.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you get the resources you need to move on after a divorce.
