Alimony and Child Support

Alimony is financial support paid to a dependent spouse. Child support is paid to the parent with a greater amount of custody time. While alimony is based upon one party's need and the other party's ability to pay, child support is based on the Massachusetts Child Support Guidelines. Our attorneys are familiar with standards applicable in alimony cases, and we know how to work within the state-mandated guidelines for child support. We can also help you seek a modification of support payments to better reflect your situation
