Alimony not part of divorce agreement for Kutcher and Moore


During the dissolution of a marriage, divorcing couples in Massachusetts need to consider various factors. In most cases, the separating spouses think about their future and how they will carryon after the split. Depending on their roles in the marriage, a spouse might request or qualify for alimony. Alimony, also called spousal support, might not only be necessary but could be considered crucial for a spouse to maintain their lifestyle after the end of the marriage.

Cell phone data used as proof of cohabitation in alimony cases


When the Massachusetts Alimony Reform Act of 2011 was signed into law, it brought with it several changes to the way alimony could be paid out. Perhaps most notably, it put an end to the notion of permanent alimony, instead instituting a new system to determine how much a spouse could be entitled to and for how long payments needed to be made. These determinations are now made based on factors such as how long the marriage lasted, as well as the income levels of the payer. One of the less talked about changes involves cohabitation, and some individuals are now using cell phone data to try and end their alimony payments.
