In Massachusetts, judges may order temporary alimony/spousal support during the course of a divorce. In the final divorce order, the judge may also order either spouse to pay alimony/spousal support. Alimony can be granted to a man or a woman.
Alimony and spousal support includes:
- Reimbursement Alimony
- Transitional Alimony
- Rehabilitative alimony
- General Term Alimony
