Alimony / Spousal Support

Do you require support from your spouse to enable you to maintain your standard of living?

In Massachusetts, alimony can be ordered from the higher wage-earning spouse to the lower earning spouse. A determination of alimony is based on a number of different factors, but primarily on the need of the recipient and the ability of the payor to pay. Some other factors include the parties’ access to earned income or other sources of income, access to assets, employability, age, health, length of the marriage, and contribution as a homemaker to the family unit. The court process to secure a fair alimony award can seem daunting.
