Is Spousal Support A Factor In Your Divorce?

Spousal support, also called alimony or spousal maintenance, is a system used to provide for the financial stability of both parties after a divorce.

At the law firm of Alan J. Pransky, Attorney at Law, in Dedham, Massachusetts, we will help you understand the aspects of your situation to present to the court to obtain a fair spousal support order.

Canton Family Courts And Spousal Support Orders

The Massachusetts alimony law limits when alimony or spousal support can be ordered and, if ordered, the time period for payment of alimony. If alimony can be ordered, a Family Court judge will consider many factors, including the need for support, the length of the marriage, the occupations and income sources of each party, and the lifestyle maintained during the marriage.

Given the unique nature of the alimony and spousal support system, it is important that you have an experienced advocate on your side who understands the system and will work to preserve your rights. Attorney Alan J. Pransky has nearly 30 years of legal experience in family law and can guide you through the complex process of spousal support.

Spousal Support Modifications

We also help clients obtain spousal support modifications if you or your former spouse’s situation has drastically changed. Typically remarriage, loss of a job and other life events can provide grounds for alimony modifications.
