Senate considers altering spousal maintenance law

The New York State Law Revision Commission joined a group of legal experts to provide testimony to evaluate effectiveness of recent changes in state divorce law. A legal review commission proposed that a 3-year-old spousal maintenance law should be revisited in order to provide more consistency and fairness in divorce settlements. The commission studied a report published in May observing impacts of a specific formula in use to calculate spousal support payments. The formula is similar to one previously used to determine child support. Its implementation is expected to limit subsequent litigation and inconsistencies following divorce agreements.
