Spousal Support

Spousal Support Lawyer in Ulster CountyNew York Spousal Support Lawyer & Alimony Attorney Helping Clients in Dutchess, Orange, & Ulster County

At the beginning of the divorce process, a dependent spouse is often in need of a temporary spousal support order in order to continue to pay bills and maintain a reasonable standard of living. Once a divorce is finalized, a spousal support order may remain in effect permanently if it is not specifically changed.

Normally, spousal support (alimony) is appropriate when a dependent spouse does not have the ability to support herself or himself. In turn, the dependent spouse may be expected to seek the education and training necessary to become self-supporting. In the case of a long-term marriage, spousal support obligations may continue until retirement.

While it was once rare or even unheard of, elder divorce does occur from time to time. It is not unusual for me to take on difficult or challenging cases such as that of an 80-year-old retired teacher who was divorcing from her husband after several decades of marriage. Young or old, payor or receiver, any spouse involved in a marital separation or divorce is encouraged to contact an lawyer early on in the process to ensure a favorable outcome in terms of spousal support.

Client Reviews
I was living a nightmare of being falsely accused in a judicial system that considers all fathers to be dead beat dads until proven innocent. Living out of state and facing the possibility of jail, I miraculously found Jon’s website and called his office. Within a week the tables were turned, the lies were exposed, and the harassment was stopped. If you need someone that will challenge the system, then you need Jonathan Katz. Greg Weaver
Jon’s integrity towards his clients is what makes him a standout attorney. He makes it a priority to know what's important to you. You’re not just a number. He is upfront with you right from the start. He will not string you along just for his financial benefit. He is only willing to settle the case if that's truly what you want. Anytime I called him I received a call back from him that day. Not someone else in the office. He is an attorney that has a passion for what's important to his clients. John Morrissey
Being a single mom, I had enough stress in my life. I had no idea how to go about protecting myself. My daughters were my priority. Jon walked me through the process. He turned a difficult time into a workable solution. Diane Chiriani
Jon thinks well, works to be clear and honest. He works to get to a strong argument. He seems to have a good working relationship with everybody at the courthouse. I get the feeling he has no trouble thinking like a judge. He is friendly and courteous. He doesn't overbill. He takes and returns calls promptly. His legal staff is friendly and competent. What's not to like? Rick S.
I liked that there was always transparency throughout my case. Genevieve H.
