The laws regarding alimony in Massachusetts changed significantly in 2011 with the passage by the state legislature of the Alimony Reform Act (Mass. Gen. Laws. c. 208, §§48-55). This statute notably set guidelines for limiting the duration of an alimony obligation based on the length of the couple’s marriage. Accordingly, it is important to understand the guidelines set forth in the law - - and how they may apply to your marriage - - as you enter into a divorce. For those who are already divorced, it is important to understand how this change in the law may (or may not) impact your alimony order. Having represented numerous clients either paying or receiving alimony, Allison and Mikalen can help advise you as to how alimony - - and the changes brought about by the Alimony Reform Act - - may impact your case.
