Does my divorce affect my immigration status?

Divorce can affect an immigrant's legal status in this country, leaving him or her to wonder what will happen once the marriage is ended. The way in which each case is handled depends on the individual's immigration status. The good news is that you may be able to stay in the U.S. even if you get divorced.

Should you become a landlord? Here are a few pointers.

If you live in New York and find yourself with an extra room or basement or other residential living space, you may have considered becoming a landlord. With real estate prices as high as they are, it is certainly tempting to have some help paying your mortgage.

Changes to the way temporary spousal maintenance is calculated

When a couple is divorcing, the amount of money that the court orders one spouse to pay to support the other is called spousal maintenance. In New York, the calculation of spousal maintenance has always been hotly debated. Many believe that the formula used to calculate the amount of maintenance resulted in dramatically high payments. However, a change in the law within the last six months has made temporary spousal maintenance more equitable for divorcing parties.
