Massachusetts Alimony Calculator is based on March 2012 Massachusetts Alimony Reform Act (MGL chapter 208 sections 48 - 55). This calculator determines, the amount and duration of an alimony obligation based on the parties income, age of the payor, length of the marriage and child support. Figures are based on the amount and duration of "General Term Alimony".

Under the new law, the amount of alimony can be between 30-35% of the payor's income. The duration of the alimony obligation depends on the length of the marriage (see table below).
