NY Divorce Spousal Maintenance

Should Spousal Maintenance Be Paid in a NY Divorce?

Maintenance is generally awarded to a spouse for the purpose of encouraging economic independence from the other spouse.

The amount and duration of post-divorce maintenance can be calculated using the MAINTENANCE CALCULATOR, however, people that are seeking an uncontested divorce have already decided how much maintenance is to be paid, if any, and are generally allowed by the Court to do so.

What are the Tax implications of Maintenance?

Maintenance is taxable income to the spouse receiving it, and tax deductable to the spouse that pays.

Is an Award of Maintenance Common?

Maintenance is common when there is a significant disparity between the income of the parties. It is less common when each party is capable of self-support, or neither party makes enough money to reasonably make the payment.
