If I Get Temporary Maintenance During The Divorce, Does That Reduce My Final Spousal Maintenance Amount In A Divorce In Brooklyn?

No, temporary maintenance during a divorce and spousal maintenance after a divorce should be unrelated, and the court should make independent determinations when it comes to the amount and duration of spousal maintenance after your divorce.

How the award is structured and other details will have to be worked out through negotiation or litigation, but ultimately the temporary maintenance is designed to keep you solvent during the divorce, and the spousal maintenance is intended to provide for quality of life or a particular achievement for a period of time after the divorce.

The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you get everything you need from your divorce, including the best possible spousal maintenance award so you can move on without worry.
