Mansfield Divorce Attorney Explains How Long Alimony is Paid for

As an experienced Mansfield Divorce Attorney, I am often asked by clients how long alimony is paid for in the state of Massachusetts.  The time length to pay alimony is dependent on how long the party has been married.  A party that has been married for 15 to 20 years will see the the highest category for alimony. The state will add up the amount of months that you have been married, and have you pay for 80% of that time.  This is how the state of Massachusetts determines their alimony time length.
