Alimony & Child Support in Jamaica Plain
Length of Alimony
If your case provides for alimony, the number of months you will receive or pay alimony is based on the number of months you were married. These are called the durational limits. The durational limits are currently an area of development in the law. Recent cases (Holmes and George) have determined that alimony durational limits can be extended in the interest of justice. Most recently, the George case provided a framework for determining what exactly is meant by “the interest of justice.” If you are looking to extend your alimony order, we will review your separation agreement and advise you of your rights in this area.
