If you are the lower earning spouse in a couple, or if you will experience financial hardship as a result of filing for divorce, we will include a request for pendente lite support – a form of temporary spousal maintenance that will last the duration of the divorce – at the outset of the action.
Courts anticipate this with divorce filings, and it is granted in the majority of requests. We’ll ensure that the motion is properly argued and that the claims you make are backed with evidence.
New York recognizes the right of people to sue for divorce even when they have no money to do so, or when a spouse may withhold marital monies after being served.
Pendente lite support exists for exactly these circumstances, and the attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can make sure you get the support you need to get free of your marriage.
