A: David’s Answer: As to whether you’ve qualify for spousal maintenance (i.e., alimony), you can utilize the court’s maintenance calculator: http://www.courts.state.ny.us/divorce/calculato…. As there are numerous factors which must be assessed as to whether you’d received maintenance at all, however, or for what duration of time, you’d benefit from having a consultation with an attorney. Thus, call a Bronx Divorce to schedule an appointment for a full assessment.
