Many people are worried about how much a divorce will cost. They know that their spouse was the breadwinner in the family, and they believe that they don't have the resources to leave. Some even put up with years of abuse and other serious misconduct because they believe that they do not have options.
This is simply not true.
At Klein Varble & Associates, in Poughkeepsie, New York, we help people throughout the Hudson Valley understand their options. Many are surprised to learn that, in a divorce, New York State has a presumption for an award of attorney's fees to be paid by the spouse with the greater income. The result? A homemaker or under-employed spouse can still leave a bad marriage without worrying about the cost. What's more, that spouse can afford high-quality legal representation — like the representation provided by the tough, experienced lawyers at Klein Varble & Associates
New York State also provides temporary spousal maintenance paid to the lesser-earning spouse by the spouse who makes more. This support levels the playing field in the early stages of the divorce process, and it often sets a bottom line for making major decisions in a divorce.
