Yes, judges in Queens presume that the lower earning spouse in a divorce will have greater financial needs than their income allows, and typically award temporary maintenance in those circumstances.
Working with experienced divorce attorneys is the best way to ensure that your temporary maintenance is adequate and appropriate.
In many instances, the temporary award can be converted to a spousal maintenance order at the end of the divorce, but your needs may be different at that time.
The best way to get everything you need in order to get through a divorce is to work with Queens divorce attorneys who understand the process and are looking out for you.
