Massachusetts divorce could benefit from financial review

Many people in Massachusetts are no strangers to the sometimes-contentious issues that can come up as a couple seeks to end their marriage. These can include a fight over child custody and support. For some with high assets, the divorce process typically includes dividing up the property obtained while a couple was married.

Massachusetts divorce may benefit from planning

The 10-year marriage of a baseball player is set to end after his wife filed for a divorce recently. The divorce came after the man was accused of a domestic violence act in the couple's home state. However, as is the case in some similar divorce cases in Massachusetts, the act was not mentioned in the filing.

Divorce in Massachusetts includes assets and liabilities

Readers in Massachusetts may be aware that each state has rules regarding the distribution of assets that can occur during a divorce. These rules for property division are combined with those regarding other issues, such as alimony and child support, when a couple in our state seeks to end their marriage in divorce. To achieve the dissolution that they seek, many spouses enter into negotiations centered on the many issues involved in a divorce.

Massachusetts child custody matters can discuss many issues

When a couple in Massachusetts seeks to end their marriage in divorce, there are many issues to be decided. When the same couple has children, the issues can include child custody and support. Such matters can be complicated when it is learned that one of the parents uses a drug, even if it a legal use of that controlled substance.
