Spousal Support Laws Are In Constant Flux
We Will Protect Your Interests Regarding Payment Or Receipt Of Alimony
The Massachusetts probate and family courts consider a number of factors when determining whether and how much alimony should be paid by one party to the other as part of a divorce settlement. In a number of cases, the law may provide for no payment, modification or termination of alimony.
The Law Offices of Andrew S. Guisbond works with clients in and around Charlestown and Middlesex County who have a wide variety of alimony needs, including clients who are requesting alimony payments and clients are seeking to modify or terminate alimony obligations.
Numerous Factors Must Be Considered When Setting Alimony
The law in Massachusetts has undergone major changes that affect both the duration and the amount of alimony one may be obligated to pay or have the right to receive when spouses decide to part ways. Generally, longer marriages are treated differently than shorter marriages. Factors to be considered by the court may include contributions by a spouse as a homemaker, any expected inheritances, and whether a spouse is arguably voluntary unemployed or underemployed.
