Join Diane Steiner and Alyssa Rower for an impassioned discussion on New York’s temporary maintenance statute. Ms. Steiner and Ms. Rower will begin by examining the factors that contributed to the statute's enactment, then proceed with a detailed assessment of precisely what it means for Matrimonial Law practitioners. They will then discuss the formula for determining how much maintenance should be provided, and identify the flaws to the formula, such as its noteworthy lack of consideration for standard of living. Further points of discussion offer indispensable suggestions in the arena of best practices: how to work around the aforementioned flaws, effective arguments that can be levied in defense of the client’s interest, and how to draft agreements for actions commenced after the enactment of the statute. They will conclude with an overview of how courts have responded to the enactment of this new law. This course is a must-see for all matrimonial attorneys eager to see how the temporary maintenance statute will impact their practice.
