Massachusetts Alimony Laws

Alimony laws are applied in a gender neutral manner. Alimony may be paid by either the husband or the wife. The amount of support is based upon the recipient’s need for support in consideration of the obligor’s ability to pay. Alimony is commonly awarded in long-term marriages.

Massachusetts alimony law outlines a formula to determine the duration of alimony and designates four different types of alimony:

  • General alimony
  • Rehabilitative alimony
  • Reimbursement alimony
  • Transitional alimony
