Unlike child support, Buffalo judges don’t have a standard formula to apply when it comes to deciding on alimony, known as spousal maintenance in New York.
Aside from the income of the non-monied spouse and the monied spouse’s ability to pay, the court will also consider things like the age and health of both spouses, the non-monied spouse’s ability to become financially self-sufficient, the length of the marriage, and other relevant issues.
When it comes to the financial elements of a divorce, there is no substitute for working with an experienced attorney who can make the strongest case for the most beneficial spousal maintenance structure.
The attorneys at Friedman & Ranzenhofer have been helping people in Buffalo come out of their divorces in the strongest possible position since 1955, and we can help you.
