We Know How To Protect And Address Your Spousal Support/Alimony Concerns

Alimony and Spousal Support: When a couple divorces, many complicated issues must be discussed. At the forefront of these concerns is financial support, commonly referred to as spousal support, maintenance and alimony. Often, the spouses are on unequal footing with regard to finances. Recently, New York enacted a law that applies a formula approach to determine maintenance/spousal support. Please go to the maintenance/spousal support page for more information.

Markus & Sheridan is fully familiar with the new spousal support law. Such knowledge is critical in representing our clients in negotiations, when either spouse has income in excess of the cap of $178,000, when circumstances requires deviation from the formula and advisory duration guidelines. Please go to the maintenance/spousal support page for more information.

Temporary Support:Temporary support insures that the bills are paid and that each spouse has sufficient resources to meet day-to-day expenses until the divorce is resolved. The new maintenance law also includes changes to temporary support. We are fully familiar with these changes and will use our knowledge and experience to protect your temporary support concerns.

Support Modifications:In certain situations, it is possible for a party to request a modification of a current support order. There are also several ways to seek enforcement of spousal support when alimony is not being paid. Our experienced attorneys understand the law and what it takes to prosecute and defend applications to modify and enforce spousal support.
