Disagreements over spousal support (formerly called alimony) payments, including whether such payments should be made at all, the amount of such payments and for how long they should extend, can cause even the most peaceful of divorces to become contentious very quickly. In cases involving long-term marriages, the court has the power to issue an order for spousal support or maintenance. The court may also order temporary spousal maintenance or no support at all.
At the Law Office of Stacy Sabatini, Esq., our Rockland County spousal support lawyers understand that financial support of an ex-spouse is intended to help the party at a lesser financial advantage to move forward with his or her life.

Long-term or even temporary spousal support or alimony is not considered an absolute right in New York, as it is with child support. It is based on a number of factors that include the length of the marriage and the need to maintain the marital standard of living. The issue of spousal support can bring anxiety for both parties as to their ability to pay or support themselves after the separation.
Arguments can arise regarding the validity of the financial information provided, the period of time over which payments will be made, the ability of a spouse to maintain employment, the inclusion or exclusion of bonus or overtime income, among many other factors. A seasoned Rockland County spousal support lawyer can greatly benefit you, whether you are the person receiving the payments or the person making them.
