Don’t Women Always Get Alimony In A Divorce In Brooklyn?

No, there’s no automatic alimony provision for women during a divorce in Brooklyn.

In fact, these days it’s common for women to earn as much or more than their husbands, in which case your divorce may not include alimony – known as spousal maintenance in New York – or a husband may receive it from a higher-earning wife.

The largest consideration when it comes to ongoing financial support from one spouse to another is each spouse’s income, not their gender.

A divorce settlement has a lot of aspects, and it’s important that you don’t sign one without the best information available.

The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you get everything you’re entitled to in a divorce – and never pay more than you have to.
