Alimony / Spousal Support

Alimony / Spousal Support

Alimony is financial support that a court orders one spouse to pay to the other upon divorce (and/or during the pendency of the case). The amount of alimony awarded, if any, depends upon the recipient spouse's need for support and the supporting spouse's ability to pay.

In Massachusetts, there are four types of alimony: “General term” alimony is for a spouse who is economically dependent. “Rehabilitative” alimony is to support a spouse until they can support themselves financially. “Reimbursement” alimony is to pay a spouse back for contributing to the financial well-being of the payor spouse. “Transitional” alimony is to help a spouse adjust to a lifestyle that divorce has changed.

Whether you are seeking alimony (or seeking to limit your alimony exposure), it is critical that you have competent counsel guiding you through the process. Attorney Summers is well-versed in the state's alimony laws and has successfully handled alimony disputes. Contact us today for a free consultation and assessment of your case.
