Spousal Maintenance

Spousal maintenance (alimony) is payment by one spouse to the other, generally for rehabilitative purposes. Numerous factors go into determining the amount and duration of maintenance. Knowledge of these factors and how they impact on your case is critical and Leonard Rosner has the experience and background to assist you in this area. Some of these factors include the length of the marriage, discrepancy in the parties’ incomes, any physical impairment of the party receiving maintenance, as well as other factors set out in the Domestic Relations Law.

In 2010 the legislature amended the statute to provide for a specific formula for temporary spousal maintenance while an action for divorce is pending. Having an attorney skilled with the knowledge of this statute and the impact it has on temporary spousal maintenance is critical. The offices of Leonard A. Rosner have this knowledge.

There are also significant tax consequences concerning the payment and receipt of spousal maintenance. The Law Office of Len Rosner not only attempts to stay abreast of the significant tax changes involving spousal maintenance, but also has access to accountants and other tax experts when unique tax issues are presented.
