You may be eligible for permanent spousal maintenance in a Queens divorce if you are significantly disabled and your potential earning power is compromised.
This is especially true if you have been in a long marriage and your health status has declined to the point where it is unlikely that you’ll be able to support yourself independently in the future.
While permanent spousal maintenance is less common than it once was, courts understand that there are still instances where it is unreasonable to believe that a lower-earning spouse can ever achieve a comparable standard of living on their own, and health issues and disabilities are a big driver of that.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you make the case that your divorce warrants a non-durational award of spousal maintenance.
