Types of Maintenance/Alimony Available in New York

The Court Can Award the Following Maintenance Types

  • Temporary Maintenance: Also called “alimony pendente lite,” this type of maintenance only lasts for the duration of the court process. The judge will take a look at the particulars of the case to determine if support is necessary and calculate the amount that will need to be paid.
  • Rehabilitative Maintenance: This is common in divorces where income, education, and professional experience are vastly different between the two spouses, meaning that one will likely struggle to enter the workforce and support themselves. Typically speaking, this support is temporary.
  • Permanent Maintenance: This type of support can be put into place after a divorce is finalized. It is generally reserved for cases such as long marriages or where the spouse cannot become self-sufficient. The court will take a variety of factors into account, both to determine the monetary value of the payments and how long the relief will be given.
