UPDATE: There is pending legislation for major changes to the alimony statute in Massachusetts. The Alimony Reform Act of 2011 was filed on January 18, 2011 and you can learn more about the Act at MassAlimonyFormula.com or in our recent blog post highlighting the differences between the bill and the current law.
Fox25 News and Steve Hitner of Mass Alimony Reform are reporting that the Legislative Task Force on Alimony has reached agreement on a final draft for an Alimony Reform Bill of 2010. The Bill will likely be filed in the next few weeks and may then be subject to further changes in legislative committee. Once the bill is available, we will be posting our thoughts and comments.
