The Supreme Judicial Court’s March 7 decision in the matter of Openshaw v. Openshaw has now raised the question of whether and to what extent “savings” may be included in a determination of need for purposes of alimony. Join our esteemed roundtable participants as they discuss the history of this important issue, the Openshaw decision and the potential impact of the law going forward.
