Concerns Relating to Financial Support in New York City
A divorce raises important questions for a family’s future. A person seeking spousal support and child support is often concerned about there being enough money to cover basic needs, or they are wondering if they will have enough to afford their house payments. The person paying support is often concerned about having access to the children and also being able to meet their own financial needs.
Our lawyers can help assess your financial situation, determine your financial needs and seek to protect your interests throughout the duration of your divorce, custody and support claims. Our goal is to assist you in resolving your troubles with as minimal a disruption to your family life as possible, while striving to make sure that you can move forward optimistically into your future.
Support Is Determined By Looking at Many Factors
- Child support in New York is determined by a set of guidelines that take into account factors such as income, expenses and the time that each parent spends with the children.
- Spousal support or maintenance is dependent on factors such as the needs of the dependent spouse, the ability of the supporting spouse to pay financial support and the cost of maintaining a reasonable standard of living. The amount and length of spousal support can depend on marriage length and the income earning potential of each spouse.
By looking at the financial situations and custody arrangements of the parties, our lawyers will prepare potential outcomes for various scenarios ahead of time, so that we are prepared for negotiations with the other party or to fight aggressively for your needs in the courtroom. We will use our nearly four decades of experience to help you achieve your goals.
