What Type of Alimony is For You?

Massachusetts’ 2011 Alimony Reform Act, M.G.L. Chapter 208, Section 48 not only changed the terms, duration and calculations of the old alimony rules, but added three (3) types of alimony Massachusetts had not previously recognized: Rehabilitative Alimony; Reimbursement Alimony; and Transitional Alimony.

  • Rehabilitative alimony – Alimony paid by one Party to the other Party for a period of time in order to allow the Party receiving alimony to gain employment or learn a new skill so that they will become self-sufficient in the future.
  • Reimbursement alimony – Alimony paid by one Party to the other Party for a period of time as reimbursement for contributing (economic or non-economic) to the financial resources during the time the Party paying alimony was enrolled and attending school and/or job training. Reimbursement alimony only applies to marriages lasting five (5) years or less.
  • Transitional alimony – Alimony paid by one Party to allow the other Party to adjust to a new lifestyle or a move to a new location which is a result of the divorce. Transitional alimony only applies to marriages lasting five (5) years of less.
