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.
