Skilled Assistance With Alimony Issues

Alimony, also commonly referred to as spousal maintenance, is the financial assistance one spouse gives to another. Massachusetts has recently enacted new laws that will have an immediate and substantial impact on how the courts will make decisions about alimony awards.

These new laws allow lawyers to make more detailed and creative arguments to achieve the best alimony arrangements for their clients. Whether the client will pay or receive alimony, the new alimony laws will help their lawyers craft more specific plans for their benefit. It is critical that both parties work with lawyers who understand these new laws and how to use them to their best advantage.

Our experience in handling these matters in even the most complex divorce provides valuable insight into the legal process. Clients trust us to defend their rights and protect their standard of living.

Modifying Alimony Payments After Divorce

After a divorce has been finalized, it might become necessary to modify the judgment as it relates to alimony, child support, custody, visitation, health insurance coverage and benefits.

If one party suffers significant changes to his or her health, finances (such as the loss of a job) or other unexpected material change in his or her circumstances, it might be possible to change the alimony arrangement. Our skilled attorneys can guide you through the process of post-judgment modification.
