Understanding the Types of Alimony Payments

All alimony is not made equal, which is why it is important to consult with a Hingham spousal support attorney. Whether you go through mediation to reach a decision or decide to litigate your divorce, it is worthwhile to learn about alimony so you understand what to expect.

The types of alimony include:

  • Periodic alimony
  • Lump sum alimony
  • Rehabilitative alimony
  • Reimbursement alimony

Seek Insight from a Skilled Spousal Support Lawyer

When left to family court, it is up to the judge to make a decision about alimony based on the information presented to them. We work hard to ensure they have all of the necessary information to make a fair decision. Alimony is not required in every divorce case but is decided on a case by case situation. Spousal support is often given in cases where one spouse is perceived to have significantly more income or assets.

A few factors which may be considered in a spousal support case include:

  • The length the marriage lasted
  • The standard of living achieved
  • The age and health of each spouse
  • The separate and marital property
  • The earning capacity and education level of each spouse

If you are facing a divorce or need to handle a related family law matter, you should not have to go through the alimony proceedings alone. Contact our firm now to speak with a compassionate Hingham alimony lawyer.
