How staying positive after a divorce can help children


Divorce can be seen as a fresh start for couples in Massachusetts whose marriages have come to an end. However, if the divorce was especially emotional or bitter, it can take a long time for those negative feelings to go away. Nevertheless, it is often for the best for each spouse to put the past behind them and work towards living a positive life, particularly if there are children involved.

New study shows link between siblings and divorce


As research into marriages continues, experts in the field of divorce seem to continuously find circumstances which can either improve or decrease an individual's chance of having a divorce in their future. Factors such as how often a couple fights and their socioeconomic background have often been found to be related to divorce rates, but a new study has found a new connection: the number of siblings an individual has.

Murdoch divorce case may become contentious


When a divorce becomes contentious, it can sometimes mean being involved in a lengthy trial divorce. Depending on how quickly the issues can be resolved, a divorce by trial can be done without extravagant costs. However, if major issues cannot be resolved quickly, contentious trial divorces can oftentimes become expensive, potentially more-so when considering the potential loses an individual might face from an unwanted decision.

Study shows financial arguments may lead to divorce


When in a relationship, arguments can sometimes be unavoidable. While many of these issues may ultimately be resolved, some couples may find themselves with irreconcilable differences. When these arguments start to become a daily occurrence, some people may consider the possibility of getting a divorce.

The unexpected questions in property division


One of the hardest aspects of a divorce is often determining which spouse gets what from the marital property. In fact, the issue of property division can be so divisive that spouses splitting on amicable terms could even find themselves in a trial disputing ownership of certain assets. While it may be easy to anticipate some legal struggle over the obvious major assets, say over ownership of the family home or motor vehicles, it often happens that major disputes occur over assets that many spouses did not even consider when first entering into their divorce.

Kardashian divorce officially finalized

For those who follow the reality show "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," or have heard of the divorce in Massachusetts news reports, it may be already known that Kim Kardashian and her ex-husband Kris Humphries were engaged in a long and contentious divorce. While an agreement was made and signed off on by a judge in April, the divorce has only now become official.

Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher divorce yet to be finalized

When going into a divorce, many people are hoping to have the proceedings finished with as little trouble as possible. While the situation may naturally bring out some negative emotions, couples going through a mutually agreed upon divorce, in Massachusetts as well as elsewhere, are sometimes able to put aside their feelings and finalize their divorce with few problems. For these individuals, an option such as settling their divorce through mediation may be a way to avoid a lengthy trial. Others, however, perhaps because of complex financial problems or personal reasons, are not able to settle their divorce quickly.
