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 at 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 several factors, including the length of the marriage, each party’s earning capacity, the age and health of each party, 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 clients can avoid the stress and strain of a trial.
We will strive 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.
