Help With Financial Support Issues
It is important to remember that divorce is a time of transition. During that time, many things that you take for granted are going to change, and that includes the financial situation for you and your children.
At The Law Offices of Amanda L. Rose and Beth V. Kelly-May, our attorneys work with clients across Fulton County who have questions and concerns about child and spousal support during and after divorce. This is a sensitive topic and it demands the level-headed, focused, personalized attention that we take pride in offering.
Important Information On Spousal Support
Spousal maintenance (alimony) is often one of the most contested issues in a divorce. New York has changed the statutory formula that is used to determine levels of support. Our lawyers are experienced with handling these determinations, and we can explain what you may be entitled to or what you may be obligated to pay.
In New York, a spouse may obtain temporary support while divorce proceedings are active, but long-term spousal support after a divorce is finalized is becoming less common. This is a discretionary question for the judge based on the evidence in the case, and our attorneys know how to present the facts of your situation to make the strongest arguments to protect your interests.
Child Support Services
Child support is a fundamental obligation for all parents. These agreements typically last until the child becomes an adult. Whether you are a custodial parent receiving payments or paying out for support, we can assist you with these agreements, including:
- Securing the proper amounts of support
- Enforcing payments
- Defending yourself against enforcement actions
- Obtaining modifications to existing child support orders
The goal of any child support action is to secure the best possible outcome. We provide hands-on, realistic advice and service in any situation while advocating for your needs every step of the way.
