What is reimbursement alimony?

During the divorce process, a multitude of worries may arise. For example, you could have to deal with a child custody dispute, which can be especially draining. Or, perhaps you and your spouse disagree about how your marital property will be split up. However, alimony is another potentially contentious topic and it is important to understand what your obligations may be or the amount of alimony you can expect to receive. For example, if you are in Boston, and are ordered to pay reimbursement alimony, you should review how this matter is handled in Massachusetts.

According to the Massachusetts Judicial Branch, people are required to pay reimbursement alimony in order to account for certain expenses that were covered by one’s former spouse. For example, if your spouse took care of your job training costs or your academic expenses when you were married, you may have to pay reimbursement alimony, under certain circumstances. This alimony, which can be paid all at once or through periodic payments, is not to be paid for a period lasting longer than five years.

On top of reimbursement alimony, there are other forms of spousal support, such as transitional alimony, rehabilitative alimony and general term alimony. Regardless of the type of alimony that you are obligated to pay, or eligible to receive, it is essential to familiarize yourself with the ins and outs of spousal support.
