Alimony Reform Gaining Traction in the US

Massachusetts has been struggling with alimony reform for quite some time. Like many states. Including Florida.

In Massachusetts, proposed legislation would limit how long alimony can generally be ordered for, based on the length of the marriage.

It would also protect a second spouse’s income from going to alimony to the former spouse. And end alimony upon cohabitation of the dependent spouse.

It would even permit a spouse to retire out of their alimony obligations.

All of these proposed amendments mirror trends sweeping the nation.

Florida has already passed its own version of alimony reform.
