Alimony/Spousal Support in Chelmsford, MA

Massachusetts Family Law Attorney for Alimony Matters

After a divorce, your financial circumstances may not be the same. The income that once supported one household must now be divided to support two, and many couples worry about how they can make ends meet. At The Law Office of John K. Leslie, we can help. Our Greater Lowell area law firm counsels clients on Massachusetts alimony issues, helping divorcing couples get the best possible financial results.

When a couple is divorcing, a judge may award either the husband or the wife alimony (called spousal support in Massachusetts), although it is more common for the wife to receive it. Judges look to certain factors to determine if spousal support is necessary, including these:

  • Length of the marriage
  • Conduct of the spouses during the marriage
  • Age, health, occupation and incomes
  • Needs and responsibilities of each spouse
  • Costs of health insurance coverage
  • Tax consequences of an alimony order

Many people have questions about eligibility for Massachusetts alimony. These are best answered in a consultation with our founding lawyer, John K. Leslie, where we can take all factors into account. Our law firm is focused on achieving results based on practical legal advice. When you talk with us about alimony, you will get a thorough assessment of your rights and options under the law. From there, we can work together to achieve the results you need and deserve.
