Alimony Statute Does Not Restrict Parties' Ability to Negotiate / Agree Upon How Alimony is Calculated

In a recent Rule 23 decision, a panel of the Massachusetts Appeals Court reversed the lower court and held that G. L. c. 208, section 53 (i.e., section 53 of the Alimony Reform Act) does not restrict parties' ability to negotiate and agree upon how alimony is calculated when entering into a separation agreement. (See Pedro v. Pedro).
