Contemplating the end of a marriage can be difficult for any couple in Massachusetts. This is particularly true when the couple has children. When parents realize that their relationship is over, one of the most difficult divorce issues for the couple to face is whether the couple should stay together for the sake of the children.
Many changes take place during a divorce. However, divorcing couples with children may benefit from being aware of other types of financial difficulties that can arise years after a divorce. For instance, when a high school student with divorced parents applies for financial aid, the roles of each parent in the student's life may impact the student's financial aid package.
Children and parents who have gone through a divorce know how challenging and painful it can be. One Hollywood director discussed in a recent interview how his parents' divorce impacted him and his relationship with his father. Steven Spielberg, director of many blockbuster films, watched his parents divorce when he was 19 years old.
