Preparing You For Long-Term Success

Spousal support is a highly contested area in divorce. It can be a barrier to successful settlement. The paying spouse may feel resentment toward providing support. The receiving spouse may believe they are entitled to financial support.

Our approach is to set our clients for long-term success. Regardless whether we represent the paying or receiving spouse, we are fastidious in our evaluation of all facts involved. We examine all available financial resources, the parties' lifestyle, assets, capacity to work, earning power and all issues involving children. We analyze the economics involved to identify the most effective strategy available.

Types Of Spousal Support

Spousal support can be temporary or permanent. Temporary support applies during the divorce proceeding when one spouse needs assistance maintaining their reasonable standard of living. When the divorce is complete, the support order may be changed or could remain in effect.

The circumstances involved for each marriage and each spouse are different. Our White Plains spousal support attorneys will discuss your best options, whether you are trying to protect your right to be supported or wish to prevent having to pay more or for longer than what is reasonable.

We also address modification of support orders to address any post-divorce changes that might affect the support amount.
