Getting a divorce in New York could put some spouses at a disadvantage if they did not follow the family finances during their marriage. This is why they need to understand their current and future financial needs and address a few elements during the process of resolving their divorce.

Basic facts about alimony in a divorce

New Yorkers who are involved in a divorce might be interested to learn about spousal support, also known as alimony.

Alimony is usually paid on a temporary basis while the payee gathers the resources to become self-sufficient.
