What Is Alimony?

Alimony is one of the most important aspects of a divorce proceeding. Whether you pay spousal support or you receive a monthly award, the decision will have a significant impact on your finances.

Alimony is also known as spousal support or spousal maintenance in New York State. It’s simply money that’s paid to the other spouse for their support and care.

Many of our clients believe that there is only one type of alimony in New York. The lack of understanding causes them to get less than they are entitled to or pay more than they can afford. There are five types of alimony in New York, and our firm has experience in handling each one.

Getting the proper legal representation is critical during this process. With our help, you can agree with your spouse or provide the courts with the necessary evidence so the judge can make a fair and sound decision.
