When you and your spouse divorce, there are a number of decisions that will have a long-term impact on your quality of life. Whether you and your partner try to negotiate an agreement on your own or take your disputes to a New York court, the question of whether alimony should be provided can be highly contested. At The Law Office of Towers & Associates, P.C., our family law attorneys have extensive knowledge of the laws governing spousal support and represent parties seeking payments as well as those who are being asked to provide them. No matter the particular circumstances, we work diligently to achieve an appropriate result for clients in the Brooklyn area and across New York.
When determining whether or not alimony should be granted, how much should be awarded and for how long, judges appraise various factors: the length of the couple’s marriage, their standard of living during the marriage, the relative income of each individual, and the needs of each spouse. Retaining a skillful alimony attorney can help you convince the court that you need support, increasing the chance that alimony will be awarded. Alternatively, we can also work to convince the judge that your ex does not need spousal support or needs less than he or she asked for.
