Proposed bill could impact Massachusetts child custody decisions

If disputes arise in a divorce, both the time and cost to the parties can increase exponentially. An experienced divorce attorney may have strategies for presenting issues to the other party in a manner that encourages resolutions without court involvement. Even in uncontested divorces, however, the time between an initial filing and the final divorce decree can take several months.

Factors that affect legal child custody determinations

Parents know that good parenting requires more than just so-called quality time. Indeed, establishing a close parental rapport with a child cannot be created from short, scheduled sessions. In fact, no formula can guarantee that type of open relationship, where a child is able to talk easily to a parent without awkward or self-conscious silence, and is comfortable simply being around that parent.

Making a list to assist in the divorce process


For many married couples in Massachusetts, the end of their marriage is unthinkable. Even if statistics prove that it is likely that more than half of all marriage in the United States will end in divorce, some couples do not believe in thinking about or preparing for the possibility of divorce. This can make the reality of divorce a very difficult and complex time. This is especially true if the couple cannot agree on their finances.

'Orange is the New Black' star seeks to block ex from alimony


A person's life and career could cause their relationship to become public interest. This is very true for public figures in Massachusetts or celebrities across the nation who are dating, married or going through relationship problems. When a wealthy or celebrity couple seeks to dissolve their marriage, many wonder if alimony will be a part of the divorce settlement. The divorce process and disputes about alimony can create a complicated situation.
