Get The Alimony And Support You Need
The amount of spousal support depends on the actual and potential earnings of each spouse in relation to each other, and the amount of money or property each spouse brought into the marriage originally. Another important factor along these lines is the standard of living the couple established for themselves during their marriage. And, if the spouse suing for payment put the payer through school during the course of the marriage, his or her alimony payments will reflect that support.
Alimony in Massachusetts is also awarded to help the recipient get back on his or her feet after the split. These payments may be expected to pay for the job training or education needed to earn an independent living. An important focus of the law is to generally make the process of establishing a new life flow as smoothly as possible.
If you need spousal support you need to take immediate action.
Spousal support may be temporary or permanent, depending upon the needs of each spouse. There are a number of factors that will determine the length of time spousal support will be provided for, and the amount of spousal support to be given. The length of the marriage, the income of both parties, the age and circumstances of both parties, and the standard of living before the divorce will all be considered when negotiating the amount & duration of spousal support.
