Can you alter a prenup after marriage?

A new tax law means married couples may want to take a second look at their prenuptial agreements. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will make it so that divorced individuals cannot write off alimony payments on their taxes at the end of the year. This law affects any divorces that go into effect after the end of the year, so it may work in certain people's best interests to finalize the divorce before 2018 ends. 

High asset divorce nightmare for billionaires Bill and Sue Gross

Many Massachusetts residents may have experienced or witnessed how divorce can affect the relationships between people. Sometimes the separating couple is eventually able to overcome the stress of the situation and get along with one another. However, there are other times when a divorce, especially a high asset divorce, can turn ugly. Some couples have been known to spy on one another, vandalize each other's homes, or even hurt one another in a few extreme cases, and family members may also get caught in the middle.

Mother of Thomas Ravenel's 2 children seeks full child custody

Over the last several years, more and more people are coming forward with tales of sexual assault, most notably against celebrities. These accusations affect not only the people directly involved but also their families, as many Massachusetts residents may have guessed. If the accused individual has children, then the other parent might become particularly concerned. This parent might feel that it is necessary to create a child custody agreement or alter an existing agreement that limit's the child or children's contact with the accused parent, as was the case with Thomas Ravenel and Kathryn Dennis
