Parenting time following a divorce

Sometimes relationships come to an end. However, when married parents in New York and elsewhere decide to call it quits, this does not mean they are calling it quits on their relationship with their child.

During the divorce process, however, parents must determine what parenting will look like post-divorce.

When is one entitled to spousal maintenance in a divorce?

Divorce is not only an emotional process, but it is also a financial one. Even when complex assets are not involved, it can still be challenging for spouses to sort through all the finances. And, spouses will need to develop a post-divorce budget that addresses their new financial situation. Sometimes a spouse may come to the realization that they will have a very hard time making ends meet following their divorce. Thus, some spouses in New York and elsewhere seek spousal support (maintenance) to offset the financial challenges he or she might have for the short and long-term.
