Event Details

The New Alimony Law - A Primer for the Public

About the new alimony law:

With the new Massachusetts Alimony Law, the general alimony term can end upon the payor attaining the retirement age, co-habitation of the recipient with another person for a continuous period of at least three months, or the expiration of the alimony duration formula based on the length of the marriage. With the previous alimony law, the term ended only upon the death of the payor or recipient or remarriage of the recipient. 

Also under the new law, alimony can be for a limited duration and can be characterized as rehabilitative, reimbursement or transitional alimony. The old law only allowed for general term alimony, which is for a longer period of time.

********************************************************************************************************************* 

David L. Rubin, Esq., and Theresa B. Ramos, Esq., attorneys practicing divorce and family law, will speak on the changes made to the Massachusetts Alimony Law with the Alimony Reform Act of 2011. The Alimony Law had previously not been updated in 30 years.

The Massachusetts Alimony Reform Act of 2011 changed when and how alimony can be ordered, and when and how alimony orders can be ended.  The new law affects anyone who currently is or may be receiving alimony.

Attendees will learn:

  • The multiple types of alimony defined by the new law
  • The maximum amount of alimony defined by the new law
  • The new limits to the duration of the general term of alimony
  • When and if existing alimony orders can be modified, and
  • The factors that will determine the type, amount and duration of alimony
