I want to know more about spousal support
Authored By: New York State Unified Court System
Spouses who are legally married must support each other for as long as they are married and both sides are alive. A spouse is a husband or wife.
If the spouses are currently married, the financial support one spouse gets from the other is called spousal support. If the spouses are divorced or in the middle of a divorce case, the financial support one ex-spouse gets from the other ex-spouse is called maintenance.
