Will I Have To Pay Maintenance After A Divorce In Queens If We Were Only Married A Few Years?

In cases of short-duration marriages, spousal maintenance is uncommon, and where it is awarded, it’s nearly always for a very limited time.

There are instances where, say, a young couple married and one went to medical school while the other worked to support the family, and they divorced a few years later.

In that case, the court may find that the doctor should help support the other spouse’s delayed education or other achievement.

So your specific circumstances matter, but you shouldn’t be overly concerned about being stuck with endless maintenance obligations after a short marriage in Queens.
