Alimony/Spousal Support

Alimony Lawyers Woburn MA & Nashua NH

Whether or not the court will award spousal support, also referred to as alimony, will depend on a variety of factors in both Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Both states, however, look at the needs of the party for support, in addition to whether or not the supporting spouse has the ability to pay. This can be a complex legal issue, and there is presently no specific formula in either state for determining the amount and length of spousal support. In Massachusetts, substantial alimony reform is pending, and you will need an experienced attorney to help navigate you through this process when new alimony laws are passed.
