If I am in a long-term cohabitating relationship that began prior to the passage of the Massachusetts Alimony Reform Act can my alimony award be modified?

  • Posted by Attorney Tangusso

Under the Massachusetts Alimony Reform Act alimony can be suspended, reduced or terminated upon the cohabitation of the recipient spouse with another person for a continuous period of at least three months. However, it is only a basis for modification in divorces occurring after the effective date of the Alimony Reform Act, March 1, 2012.
