Permanent Spousal Support Lawyer in New York

What is Permanent Spousal Support or Alimony?

Alimony, often referred to as spousal support or maintenance, is a type of payment or support plan that provides a spouse with the financial means that he or she needs to continue living comfortably. Paid from one spouse to the other for any given period of time after the divorce, there are several types of alimony that a spouse can seek during the divorce process, one of which includes permanent spousal support.

Permanent alimony is a type of support that is granted by a family court for a spouse who has most likely relied on their spouse for many years, or decades even, and will require extensive support after the marriage has ended.

If you are facing divorce and feel that you are entitled to receive permanent spousal support, get in touch with our New York alimony lawyers today. We are here to safeguard your future.

Factors Considered to Determine if Permanent Spousal Support Should Be Awarded

While many states have very clear laws describing the length of the marriage required to obtain permanent alimony, the statutes in the state of New York are ambiguous in this matter, as it will be up to the family court whether you can be granted permanent alimony. Additionally, laws have been passed in our state that allow this type of alimony to be terminated should the recipient of the support begin cohabitating with another person.

Other aspects that will be taken into consideration for a situation, such as:

  • The person's ability to find an employer after the marriage has ended (if currently unemployed)
  • The person’s ability to go back to school after the marriage has ended

For individuals who have dedicated their entire lives to taking care of the household rather than going to school or obtaining experience in the working world, permanent alimony will be one of the most beneficial forms of support received.
