January 2019 Archives

More children are being raised by grandparents

Recent statistics suggest that more and more grandparents, in Massachusetts and elsewhere, are involved in raising their minor grandchildren until they reach adulthood. According to Census statistics, a little over 1 in 20 homes had a grandchild living with at least one of their grandparents. This is double the number of children living with grandparents in 1970. Of these households, 60 percent actually had the grandparents, or one of them, as the responsible adult in the home.

Dividing retirement plans calls for special care

Many Springfield, Massachusetts, residents have a lot of wealth tied up in their retirement plans. These plans are often offered through one's work. Plans, including pensions and 401(k) investment plans, are a common way of saving money up for retirement, as they usually have favorable tax consequences associated with them.

How does health insurance factor into child support?

Even with changes on the federal political landscape regarding whether health insurance is mandatory, most parents in Springfield realize how important it is for children to have access to health care. Aside from the fact that children of all ages need to visit doctors and other professionals as a matter of routine, many children face serious physical or emotional conditions that require ongoing care and treatment.
