Spousal Maintenance Lawyer in Westchester County

Helping You with Alimony Issues in New York

Spousal maintenance—also referred to as “spousal support” or “alimony” in other states—is an amount of money that one ex-spouse pays to another. Court-ordered maintenance is determined by taking into account the standard of living that was established during the marriage and can be set to last for a specified period of time or indefinitely. When spousal maintenance is set to be indefinite, it can be terminated upon the death of either party or if the dependent spouse remarries.
