Yes, if you earn less than your spouse and need financial support for a period of time after your divorce in Brooklyn, then you stand a good chance of receiving an award for rehabilitative maintenance.
This will give you time, often a period of years, in which to establish yourself in the workforce, find a better job or career, or even pursue additional educational goals.
The court is extremely interested in both parties in a divorce being able to become financially independent, and an experienced Brooklyn divorce attorney can make sure you get the resources you need to do that.
At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we help people come out stronger after their divorce.
Whether you want to start a new career, launch a new business, or build a life that maximizes time with your children, we can help you get the settlement you need to achieve your goals.
