I Earn Less Than My Spouse. Will I Receive Alimony After Our Brooklyn Divorce?

As the lower earning spouse, you may receive alimony, also called spousal maintenance, after your divorce in Brooklyn.

How much and for how long will be based on a variety of factors that the court will consider, or you and your spouse will negotiate.

At the end of a long marriage, a spousal maintenance award may be of longer duration than one would likely get after a shorter marriage.

If your health status is poor and the court feels you may not become financially independent, you may be entitled to a longer duration or larger sum of spousal maintenance than a person who is healthy.

At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we help clients get the best settlement possible at the end of a marriage.

When clients require spousal maintenance to transition to life after divorce, we see to it that their needs are met.
