Yes, if you have income coming in when you file for divorce, it will impact whether and how much alimony you can receive.
That doesn’t mean that going back into the workforce is the wrong approach, but it’s worthwhile to consult with an experienced Queens divorce attorney before making that decision.
For instance, if you want to receive a spousal maintenance award that would allow you to obtain or finish a degree, it may be worthwhile to wait to ensure that you end up with the resources to allow that, thus securing your financial future for the long term, rather than taking reduced wages in the short term.
These are complicated considerations, and there are significant tradeoffs either way.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you understand all the options so you can make the best choice for you and your future.
