Family Law Lawyer Helping You Understand Alimony and Spousal Support

Support determinations can be one of the most contentious issues for couples facing divorce. When couples cannot agree on how income should be distributed or whether a dependent spouse is entitled to support, the court will intervene. Determinations will then be based on mandatory and optional factors, including duration of marriage, disparity in income and the value of the estate.

In March 2012, support laws will be reformed having a direct impact on the support determinations. If you are entering a divorce or facing a dispute involving alimony or support, it is important to work with an experienced attorney who understands the complicated changes in the law.

The court has discretion in making these determinations, so it is important to work with an experienced attorney who can protect your rights and financial security into the future. At Zuckerman Law Group, PC, in Woburn, Massachusetts, we have extensive experience handling even the most complex cases involving alimony or support cases and can effectively protect your interests.
