Alimony Laws in New York
Alimony, or spousal maintenance, refers to the monthly payment that one spouse makes to another following a divorce. This is notably distinct from child support. In New York, the court determines whether either spouse is entitled to alimony, as well as for how long.
There are several factors that the court will consider when deciding if alimony should be awarded, including:
- The length of the marriage
- The age and health of each spouse
- Which spouse the children live with
- Health insurance coverage and costs
- The income and property of each party
- The equitable distribution of marital property
- The need to pay for training or education expenses
- The present and future earning capacities of each spouse
