How Do Queens Divorce Courts Calculate Temporary Maintenance Amounts?

Queens courts calculate temporary maintenance using one of two income-based formulas.

And while these calculations can give a ballpark estimate for temporary maintenance in many Queens divorce actions, there are numerous variables that complicate the estimates.

Where the court finds that the age and health of a spouse are significant, or that one spouse has wastefully dissipated marital assets, or even if the standard of living the spouse is accustomed to cannot be maintained with the calculated amount, judges have discretion to change what they find to be an unjust temporary maintenance figure.

It’s extremely important to us that our clients have all the resources they need to move forward – and all that they’re entitled to at the end of a marriage.
