Can i get alimony even if im on disability?

Q: Im on disability for major depression and my husband committed adultery. I want to get a divorce but i will need help to live on my own.

A: David’s Answer: Yes – the mere fact that you receive disability wouldn’t disqualify you from receiving alimony (i.e., maintenance). The Court would otherwise look primarily at the disparity of income, along with a host of other factors. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Divorce attorney for a full assessment.
