I Supported My Spouse Through College And Now They Want A Divorce. Can I Get Alimony In Brooklyn?

Brooklyn Spousal Maintenance Divorce Attorneys

If your spouse is the primary wage earner in your home then yes, you have solid grounds to ask for spousal maintenance, especially in cases where you’ve sacrificed during the marriage in ways that specifically benefit your spouse.

If you supported them as they pursued higher education, and credentials that will enhance their earnings over the course of a lifetime, you may also be entitled to a greater financial settlement reflecting the value of that credential.

When our clients have put their own dreams on hold to see a spouse succeed, only to have that spouse abandon the marriage, we know that one of the most important things to do is ensure that the divorce settlement gives you a chance to live the life you want.

If that means additional education, time to find a job you love, or anything else, the attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino fight for our clients to have everything they want when their marriages end.

Call us today at 718-725-9601 for a free consultation with an experienced Brooklyn alimony lawyer.
