Reforming Massachusetts Alimony Laws

On Wednesday, February 9, 2011, Marc Fitzgerald, on behalf of the Massachusetts Bar Association, joined a panel on WGBH's The Emily Rooney show to discuss a new bill that proposes changing the alimony system from one based on entitlement to one based on need.  Under current law, ex-spouses in Massachusetts are required to pay alimony for life. Emily was also joined by attorney Wendy Murphy and alimony reform supporter Gregory Shoukimas.
