What is Alimony in NY?

Alimony is designed to help those individuals who have relied on the income of their spouse during their marriage and will have no immediate support following divorce. For those former spouses who are able to work but just need time to find a job, complete an education program, or raise children, temporary spousal support is available. If individuals are unable to support themselves due to age or disability, then they will be eligible for permanent alimony.

The amount of alimony to be paid from one spouse to another varies based on individual circumstances. There are a number of factors that go into determining this.

The amount of monthly spousal support will be determined by the following:

  • Standard of living
  • Duration of marriage
  • Income and property per spouse
  • Earning capacity of each spouse
  • Hindrances to earning capacity
  • Children and who will raise them
  • Personal sacrifices for career or educational pursuits

If you and your spouse are having difficulties coming to terms on the amount of alimony that should be paid each month, it would be best to seek the counsel of experienced alimony attorneys in NYC.
