Will Alimony Be A Part Of Your Divorce?
Following a divorce, your financial situation will probably not be the same as prior to the divorce. In Massachusetts, there are currently no hard and fast guidelines for determining alimony, also called spousal support. However, we can predict that the judge will consider the income of both parties and several other elements that may affect the final spousal support payment if any. Whether you are a possible recipient or payer, you need a hard-working, knowledgeable lawyer to help protect your rights and look out for your best interests.
