Tips to consider when discussing property division

Communication between couples going through a divorce can be strained and sometimes awkward. Because of this, people will sometimes try to rush through discussions about how to divide assets in order to move the process along. Attorneys in Massachusetts can help clients to understand how assets are best divided and why some methods of property division look better on paper than in practice.

The importance of communication in a high asset divorce

Couples in Massachusetts know that sorting out finances can be very difficult under normal circumstances. These difficulties can be made worse during a divorce, especially a high asset divorce. A lack of communication can make it difficult for couples to determine how to fairly divide their assets.

Benefits of sharing child custody

Children react to divorce in several different ways. Some will lash out and purposely stir up trouble, and other will withdraw into themselves. There are still others that will act as if nothing is wrong until no one is watching. Parents in Massachusetts might consider sharing child custody as a way to provide a stable environment for their children.

Understanding prenuptial agreements

A prenuptial agreement, entered into before marriage, can serve as a way for Massachusetts couples to decide how to apportion their assets in the event of a divorce. Especially for high-asset couples, a valid prenup can protect property and cut down on potential litigation.

Failure to pay child support results in arrest

Individuals in Massachusetts know that divorce is difficult for the entire family, especially children. Family members and friends may feel like they need to choose sides, and children are too often caught in the middle. When custody is determined, it is important for each individual to honor any agreements concerning visitation or child support.
