Alimony Laws in Massachusetts
In litigation, the judge is the one who determines alimony payments by figuring out a fair and equitable agreement depending on the couple’s specific situation. Unlike other states, Massachusetts doesn’t have set amounts or percentages when creating alimony orders. The judge will consider a variety of factors when determining the amount of alimony and how long it will last.
Massachusetts courts will use the following factors to determine alimony:
- The length of the marriage
- The earning capacity of both parties
- The roles of both spouses during their marriage
- The needs of their children
- How each party contributed to the acquisition of property
- The health conditions of both spouses
It's important to remember that couples always have the ability to create their own alimony arrangement outside of the courtroom. Creating a spousal support plan this way is faster, more cost-effective, and more likely to meet your specific needs; however, we recommend still having your own attorney to protect your interests. If creating an agreement out-of-court doesn't work, your attorney will be prepared to litigate your case before the judge.
Can I Request Modifications to Alimony Payments?
If you have an alimony payment agreement that no longer matches your situation, you can request an alimony payment modification. A modification request can be made if you have an unexpected financial change, such as a new job or a relocation. Because you can only request a modification every few years, you should consult with an experienced attorney for guidance to achieve your desired results.
Alimony may change or end due to the following situations:
- The death of the payor
- The death of the payee
- Remarriage of the payee
- If the recipient moves in with a new partner
- If either party obtains a new job or a raise
