Alimony in Massachusetts

Do you expect to pay alimony or to get alimony in Massachusetts? In this video experienced mediator Dr. Thomson explains why alimony is sometimes justified. She also describes the main factors that determine the duration of alimony in Massachusetts and how much is paid.
UPDATE! From tax-year 2019 alimony is no longer deductible to the payor and taxable for the recipient. Shuneet's 2008 video is correct on all counts, except this recent change.
