Unfortunately, when your spouse is technically unemployed, even if they have some measure of support, you run the risk of ending up with maintenance payments to them after the marriage ends.
To protect yourself from an unfair financial settlement, you should work with experienced Brooklyn divorce attorneys who know how to show the court that your spouse’s failure to thrive shouldn’t land on you to remedy from your hard earned paychecks.
It can be extremely frustrating to live with a deadbeat spouse, but even more frustrating to leave the marriage and find yourself continuing to fund their lifestyle.
At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we protect our clients from the kinds of financial settlements that leave them paying for a working age spouse to avoid a job and responsibility.
Call us today at 718-725-9601 to speak to a Brooklyn divorce attorney who can win you the best possible financial settlement in your divorce.
