Massachusetts Divorce

If a couple is unable to come to an agreement on support payments through negotiation, family court will use several factors in awarding support from one spouse to the other. These include:

  • The length of the marriage
  • Age of each party
  • Health of each party
  • Occupation of each party
  • The amount of income of each party
  • Skills and abilities of each with regard to employability
  • The conduct of each party during the marriage
  • The estate and liabilities of each party
  • Potential earning capacity of each party

While there are no set guidelines for determining the amount of spousal maintenance in each particular divorce case, Koufman & Frederick, LLP, has the experience you need in the courtroom. We are familiar with the local courts and will use that knowledge in representing your best interests when presenting your specific situation.
