What Is Rehabilitative Maintenance In A Divorce In Queens?

Rehabilitative maintenance is a durational financial contribution paid by the higher earning spouse in a marriage to the lower earning spouse, after the divorce is finalized.

The purpose is to allow the lower-earning spouse time to advance their career, education, or take other steps to become financially independent.

The length of payment will be related to the length of the marriage, but may also include specific goals, like the recipient spouse’s desire to return to college and get a degree.

These awards are normal, especially in cases where the incomes of the two spouses are very different.

When you work with an experienced Queens divorce attorney, you can count on any maintenance award being fully argued to maximize your position.

The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can make sure you that you leave your marriage in the strongest possible financial position.
