Child custody cases could interest Massachusetts parents

Some Massachusetts residents may think that celebrities lead perfect lives. However, many actors and actresses and other well-known individuals can face divorce and child custody issues just as other people can. These proceedings can be difficult, especially because they are often covered by news outlets, but concerned parties may be able to learn from the situations that celebrities find themselves in.

Could Facebook affect divorce in Massachusetts?

When a marriage comes to an end, many Massachusetts residents may look back and wonder what may have contributed. There has been some discussion lately that social media may play a role in marriages ending. Before couples blame Facebook for their marital problems, however, they may wish to take a closer look at the research concerning social media and divorce.

Massachusetts parents may wish to understand child support

The financial aspects of divorce can often be a major concern for Massachusetts residents who are going through separation. Though the court costs and fees may only be applicable while the case is proceeding, it is important for parents to understand that other financial obligations will continue after a divorce. Child support is one form of financial obligation that parents will need to contend with after separating.

Dealing with property division during divorce can spark conflict

When two people decide to get divorced in Massachusetts, the event may spark emotions ranging from rage to sadness. It is natural for those getting divorced to want to vent to friends and family about the negative points of their soon-to-be exes. Some individuals even use social media as a forum to emotionally unload while going through a divorce involving heated issues such as property division. Since people’s online and offline lives today are more intertwined than ever before, a few tips may help a divorcing individual to protect himself or herself.

Divorce could impact retirement accounts in Massachusetts

Some Massachusetts couples may feel happy to say that they have been married for decades. When couples have been married for such significant amounts of time, they will likely begin making plans for their future as a couple. However, it is important to realize that even couples who are older are not exempt from potentially facing divorce. If they do find themselves in such a situation, some of those future plans could be greatly affected.
