Alimony Laws in Massachusetts
Massachusetts courts create alimony plans by analyzing numerous factors; that's why there aren’t any set amounts or percentages a spouse is required to pay. Judges understand that every situation is different, that is why the they will examine the couple’s financial situation and make a determination based on that information. Without adequate legal representation, you may not know if you are getting a fair alimony agreement.
Massachusetts courts determine alimony by analyzing various factors, including:
- Length of the marriage
- Earning capacity of both spouses
- Both spouse’s role during the marriage
- The needs of any children in the marriage
- How much each spouse contributed to the acquisition of property
- Age and health of both spouses
By far, the best way to ensure your alimony agreement works for you is to craft it yourself. Couples have the option of creating their own alimony agreements out-of-court, which is both cost-effective, quicker, and less likely to be emotionally draining. If (and only if) couples are unable to come to an agreement outside of the courtroom, they'll take their case before a judge to be litigated. Our Dedham alimony lawyers can help you craft a solution outside of court to save you both money and time.
Can I Make Modifications to My Alimony Plan?
If either party experiences significant financial shifts, they can request an alimony modification. Regardless of whether the payee or the payer experiences a significant change, such as a new job, the court will determine if the change justifies altering your alimony.
Alimony can end or be changed due to the following circumstances:
- The death of the payer
- The death of the payee
- Remarriage of the payee
- If the recipient moves in with a new partner
- Either party gets a new job or a raise
