Alimony considerations in a divorce or separate support case present difficulties for practitioners in formulating what would be a fair and reasonable award under current law. The major alimony litigation issue pertains to duration. In response to this issue, the Massachusetts Bar Association and the Boston Bar Association formed a joint Alimony Task Force that has been working on developing proposals for alimony standards. The overall mission of the Alimony Task Force is to stimulate judicial, academic and legislative discussion in order to foster consistency and predictability in alimony awards.

Contemporary Alimony Considerations is sponsored with the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, Flaschner Judicial Institute and the Massachusetts Bar Association.
