Alimony and Spousal Support Attorneys Serving Queens and Nassau County

During and after a divorce, one spouse may require extra help paying bills, finding a home and finding a job. In these situations, alimony can help get a spouse back on his or her feet.

Whether you are in need of alimony or may be paying alimony, the attorneys at Ramo, Nashak, Brown & Garibaldi LLP can help you. From our office in Queens, our alimony and spousal support lawyers represent clients in Nassau County and throughout New York City. We are committed to providing you with the advice, answers and advocacy you need about alimony, spousal support and spousal maintenance in your divorce.

Alimony in New York

There are two types of alimony in New York: temporary and permanent. Temporary or interim alimony is provided to a spouse during a divorce. This alimony is set using a statutory formula that looks and compares each party's income. Adjustments can be made to this amount if there are special circumstances.

With permanent alimony, a judge has greater discretion and will award alimony based on a number of factors. This includes the length of the marriage, each spouse's earning capacity, the age and health of each spouse and other factors.

Understanding and Adapting to Your Needs

At our firm, we will work closely with you to understand your needs and goals in your divorce. Wherever possible, we work to resolve alimony disputes outside of the courtroom so you can avoid the stress and strain of a trial.

We will work to develop a workable and realistic alimony arrangement for you. However, we do understand that circumstances can change over time. If there has been a substantial change in your situation, such as the loss of a job, we can help you seek a modification to your alimony.
