Our attorneys have been blogging about alimony in Massachusetts since before the Massachusetts Alimony Reform Act (ARA) was enacted. In fact, we were the first law firm in the state to provide an online alimony calculator after the ARA was enacted through alimonyformula.com. Since then, our attorneys have blogged on Massachusetts alimony questions ranging from whether the ending of a child support order justifies an increase in alimony to the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court’s controversial 2015 decisions extending lifetime alimony despite the provisions of the Alimony Reform Act.
Attorney Payne has been especially prolific, blogging about when alimony can be modified in Massachusetts, the pros and cons of unallocated support as a hybrid between child support and alimony, whether alimony payments are tax deductible, and the difference between merging and surviving provisions in divorce agreements.
Our attorneys have also blogged on the differing definitions of “length of the marriage” under the Massachusetts alimony and property division statutes, discussed how changes to the federal Social Security law may impact alimony, and blogged (even more) about modifying alimony under the Alimony Reform Act. We have reviewed the enforceability of alimony waivers in prenuptial agreements and discussed how to correct the language of the Alimony Reform Act to make it applicable to all Massachusetts divorce cases. Also covered: deviations from the alimony formula under the Alimony Reform Act and the proposed Alimony Re-Reform Act, which would update the Act to make it applicable to pre-2012 alimony orders.
