In New York, spousal support is called maintenance, while most other states define this as alimony. The attorneys at Geffner Kersch use their vast experience to help their clients navigate through the newly enacted temporary and post-divorce maintenance guidelines which now provide a formula to calculate maintenance. We strive to make sure that these maintenance guidelines are appropriately applied to you, and ensure that you are protected.
In January 2016, attorneys Alisa J. Geffner and Carolyn D. Kersch presented a live program which is available on the web discussing the nuts and bolts of these new guidelines. This program has been viewed by more than 200 attorneys and other individuals throughout New York State.
