Ex spouse just received promotion, am I now entitled to alimony?

Additional Information:

My ex-wife and I got divorced just over 2 years ago.  She was recently promoted to partner at her Westborough law firm.  She now makes significantly more money than I do.  I supported her as she was studying to become a lawyer.  Am I now entitled to alimony and if so, what is the process to modify the divorce agreement?

ATTORNEY ANSWER:

There are two components to your question that need to be addressed. First, you should have an attorney review the agreement to determine if there was a waiver of future alimony and second the agreement must be viewed to determine whether it survives as in independent legal contract or if it is modifiable related to the issue of alimony. As you probably know Massachusetts has enacted a new alimony law which defines when alimony is warranted and for how long. It is important to review this law to understand how a judge might rule in your case.
