Alimony/Support and Maintenance Claims in New York and New Jersey

Courts may award temporary spousal support while a divorce is pending, or permanent support as part of a divorce decree. New York has developed guidelines that courts must consider when awarding temporary support during a divorce, but courts may deviate from the guidelines when circumstances warrant a deviation.

Courts in New York and New Jersey have considerable discretion when it comes to permanent alimony/spousal support awards. Courts have the discretion to determine whether to award support, to determine the amount of the support award, and to determine the duration of the support award. Key issues courts will consider include the length of the marriage, the ability of a spouse to pay and the need of the other spouse to receive support.

Given the significant discretion granted to courts in such matters, it is often best for parties to reach an agreement on spousal support. You will find Mr. Greenberg's negotiation skills, when coupled with his knowledge and experience, invaluable in helping you to reach an agreement which benefits both you and your family. If an agreement cannot be reached and you have to litigate, Mr. Greenberg is an experienced litigator who knows how to skillfully frame complex financial issues and make a compelling case in court.
