Maintenance (Alimony)

In New York, there is a statutory guideline formula for spousal maintenance – commonly known as alimony.  It is important to remember that this formula is simply a guideline, and particularly in cases where the income of the payor spouse exceeds the cap ($184,000 in 2019), various factors take on additional relevance. If you are likely to be required to pay spousal maintenance or are on the receiving end of such support, our team will determine the appropriate range of support, determine whether or not you are paying/have been awarded the correct level of payment, and even attempt to modify a court order depending on the circumstances.  Our team will help you navigate the complexities of the law to ensure the appropriate level of maintenance payments.
