Downsizing living space after high asset divorce

For many Massachusetts spouses, one of the most concerning aspects of a looming divorce is the need to find alternative living arrangements once the process is complete. Even in a high asset divorce, one or both spouses will often need to find new housing options once a divorce is underway. It can be difficult to consider moving out of the family home, especially if that property is one's dream house.

Divorce and alimony: are you eligible?

Divorce comes with numerous financial concerns and misunderstandings regarding property division and financial support. Alimony is one of the most important issues that must be addressed upon filing for divorce in Massachusetts, but there is much misinformation and confusion regarding eligibility and potential payment amounts. The courts have the authority to grant alimony based on the judge's discretion and the details of the individual case.

Understanding child support and child custody disputes

As Massachusetts readers know, there are many reasons why people become involved in child custody or financial disputes. Protecting parental rights is a main concern for most parents facing divorce, but many also have worries regarding financial security, child support obligations and continuity of lifestyle. These insecurities and fears about the future are some of the main reasons why people find themselves in the middle of a custody battle.

Navigating a high asset divorce later in life

When older Americans decide to end their marriage, it will bring to light a host of complicated financial issues that must be addressed before the process can be finalized. Gray divorce is a term given to describe the high and growing number of people who choose to divorce in the years close to retirement and after decades together. A high asset divorce is almost always complicated, and it can be especially more so for Massachusetts couples with a large amount of retirement savings.
