Could divorce run in the family?


The environment a person grows up in will often determine how they turn out. Their family and home life will often shape how they will carry out their home and family life in the future. Children of divorce will often carry those memories with them and revert back to them when they are in a marriage of their own. Married couples in Massachusetts understand that the negativities of their parents' marriage could be present in their own marriage, which could ultimately lead to divorce and various other family law issues.

Child custody with special needs children


There are some life events that can be very life changing and could significantly alter the lives of a couple and their children. When married couples in Massachusetts file for divorce, there is a laundry list of issues that need to be addressed before the dissolution could be finalized. When children are involved in the process, the needs of the children will shape how a divorce agreement is constructed. In addition, the needs of the children not only determine child support but other family law issues such as custody and the ability to relocate.

The benefits of collaborative divorce and family law mediation

How staying positive after a divorce can help children

However, if the divorce was especially emotional or bitter, it can take a long time for those negative feelings to go away.
