How to deal with love ones giving unwanted advice in a divorce


In life, there are several people an individual will look up to and listen to for advice. When couples in Massachusetts go through a divorce, it is common to reach out to those people for advice and help. This not only assists them with the emotions they are dealing with but also provides them with hope and perspective. But while friends and family members try to help, their help can actually result in more divorce issues.

Rising request for prenuptial agreements by women


When Massachusetts's couples get married, they usually have a laundry list of things to consider, including whether to have a prenuptial agreement. Even though it is not an ideal topic to discuss, the reality is that divorce is an issue that should be noted. Whether a couple decides to have this discussion prior to marriage, during the marriage or when they decide to divorce, it is a common event to address. Drafting instruments such as a prenuptial agreement or a postnuptial agreement will help to avoid or reduce divorce legal issues and disputes.

Is the new alimony law in Massachusetts ignored?


Money and finances are an everyday issue. Married couples in Massachusetts understand that money can cause huge disputes during a marriage, and often these issues could cause a divorce. Even if a divorce is initiated to halt the arguments around the couple's finances, these problems could infect the divorce process and beyond. When an ex-spouse seek spousal support, for example, disputes surrounding alimony payments could plague the divorced couple for years to come.

Although couples decide to get married for various reasons, one common reason is to spend the rest of their life with their partner. On the other hand, even if the couple can get through difficult times with one another, married couples in Massachusetts understand that there comes a time when divorce is the best option for them. The decision to dissolve a marriage is often a very difficult one to make, but the divorce process is often filled with numerous factors to consider and decisions to make. This is especially true in a celebrity or high-asset divorce where there is a laundry list of marital assets and even spousal support to consider.

When parents split or have finalized a divorce, there can still be issues to deal with and consider post-divorce. Parents in Massachusetts need to constantly consider and reconsider what is best for their children. This often means determining child custody and making modifications if disputes arise or substantial changes occur in the lives of the parents or children. No matter the reason for change; the best interest of the children should always be paramount in the changes to child custody arrangements.

The affects divorce has on financial careers


When issues are present in a marriage, couples in Massachusetts need to determine what is best for their future. Even if they decide that a divorce is their best option, the process can be very life altering and cause hardships in their personal and professional life. The emotions and disputes that occur during the dissolution could significantly affect the future of the soon-to-be ex-spouses, especially when it is a high asset divorce.

What to expect financially in a Salem divorce


A Salem divorce can be an emotional and stressful experience for all the parties involved. This is especially true in a contested divorce, where disputes over property division, child custody and finances can result in extended litigation. However, there are several things both men and women can do to ease the difficult process that all too often is divorce.

Gray Divorces on the rise


As times change, so do people. Attitudes towards marriage are often affected by changes in culture both in Massachusetts and throughout the country, and a recent divorce statistic is showing how drastically opinions on divorce may have shifted over the years. The growing trends of divorces amongst individuals above the age of 50 has become a more common occurrence, so much so that sociologists have given it the label "gray divorces," and a recent study shows this trend may continue to be on the rise.

Legal issues often persist after divorce


Divorce is oftentimes an emotionally stressful time, so it's no surprise that many people going through one would like to have all of the issues resolved when the divorce is finalized. However, despite many people's best efforts, there are some issues which may not be resolved with the finalization of a divorce, such as alimony agreements and child custody issues. Oftentimes these situations will persist long after a divorce is completed, so it can be important for both parties involved to develop a strategy for handling these issues if they arise.
