If My Spouse Works Off The Books, How Can I Get Alimony In Queens?

Many people do their best to conceal income from the IRS, so those who work for themselves, work for tips, or otherwise have discretion to process their gross earnings may appear less well off than they really are.

When you’re divorcing someone in this situation and want alimony, also known as spousal maintenance, you’ll need to present a case that reflects your spouse’s real earnings and allow the court to impute income to make up the difference.

Courts in Queens have broad discretion in how they structure a spousal maintenance award, so a clear, persuasive case can make a big difference in your financial status once the divorce is finalized.

Just because your spouse takes advantage of tax law doesn’t mean they should take advantage of you.
