Assertive New York Alimony Attorneys Fight to Protect Your Best Interests

Persistent lawyers assist clients in the Brooklyn with spousal support matters

When you and your spouse divorce, there are a number of decisions you need to make that will have a long-term impact on your quality of life. One of the decisions the New York courts generally make on behalf of those involved is whether one spouse must provide the other with monetary support, also known as alimony or spousal support. At Jacqueline Chin Quee, Esq., our family law attorneys have extensive knowledge of the laws governing support and know that alimony is one of the most frequently contested issues in divorce. We are prepared to help you whether you seek payments or will have to provide them. We work diligently to reach fair financial agreements for clients in the Brooklyn area and across New York.

Determined New York advocates handle alimony negotiations and litigation

When determining whether or not alimony should be granted, how much should be awarded and for how long, judges appraise various factors: the length of the couple’s marriage, their standard of living during the marriage, the relative income of each individual, and the needs of each spouse. Retaining a tenacious alimony attorney can help you convince the court that you need support, increasing the chance that alimony will be awarded. Alternatively, we can also work to convince the judge that your ex does not need spousal support or needs less than he or she asked for.

Our lawyers advise clients on the types of alimony that are relevant to their divorce, which may include:

  • Temporary alimony— Meant to provide support during divorce proceedings, temporary alimony can include payments to cover attorney fees and relevant litigation costs.
  • Rehabilitative alimony— To help a dependent spouse become self-reliant, rehabilitative alimony is granted. This support may end when the recipient has found a job or completed their education.
  • Reimbursement alimony—These payments are awarded to the spouse who worked to support the family while the other spouse pursued professional training or career development. This type of alimony agreement may end or the amount paid may decrease once the spouse has been compensated.
  • Permanent alimony— Permanent alimony may be given to a spouse who is seriously ill or who has demonstrated economic need. This agreement can often be modified due to changing financial needs or other circumstances.

Our attorneys at Jacqueline Chin Quee, Esq. will work with you to determine what kind of alimony is the best for your situation.

Attentive attorneys help to enforce and revise arrangements

Our clients are often concerned about whether they will be required to pay alimony if their circumstances change. Others come to us if they are not receiving the alimony payments specified by the agreement. At Jacqueline Chin Quee, Esq., we petition the court for revisions to alimony arrangements and assist clients with enforcement actions when the other party fails to pay on time or at all. No matter how complicated your situation, we will fight for a positive outcome.
