Is secret spending an issue in your marriage?

In any relationship between two people, deception can lead to an erosion of trust and the relationship's eventual demise. This is especially true when it comes to the relationship between spouses. Within a marriage, infidelity is often regarded as the ultimate act of betrayal and many marriages that are tested by such challenges ultimately fail. It's important to note, however, that not all acts of infidelity within a marriage involve another man or woman.

Ownership, cleanup and development of Crow Hill property still uncertain: Part II

In a recent blog post, we began discussing the long-standing legal dispute between the city of Worcester and Green Landscapes, LLC over a 15-acre Crow Hill parcel of land. While the two sides have been litigating in court for years over the cleanup, development and ownership of a 4.3-acre portion of the undeveloped property; this past summer, in a behind-closed-doors deal, city council members voted to claim the land under eminent domain laws.

Legal factors involved with shared custody and parental relocation

For any parent in Massachusetts who is thinking of moving to another state, concerns over how a child will adjust often exist. However, in cases where a parent is divorced and shares custody of a child with an ex-spouse, he or she must also take steps to obtain permission to legally relocate with a child to another state.

Drafting legal, effective non-compete agreements: work with experienced legal counsel

Most people are well aware that competition is fierce in the technology industry, where new products and services are popping up and continuing to improve and develop at a blinding rate. It makes sense, then, that businesses in the industry would be keen on recruiting top talent and protecting their innovative ideas and business plan. One of the tools businesses frequently use to do this is non-compete agreements.

Ownership, cleanup and development of Crow Hill property still uncertain

Worcester residents are likely familiar with the legal battle that has been waged for years between the city and the owners of 15 acres of undeveloped property at Crow Hill. While the area is zoned for the development of single-family residential units, such development is unlikely anytime soon as it's still unclear who actually owns the property.

How the Internet is contributing to divorce

According to the Pew Research Center, a whopping 74 percent of U.S. adults use at least one social networking website. The popularity of social websites like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are proof that, whether we like it or not, we live in a world that is increasingly becoming virtual in nature. While social media websites have been credited with everything from reconnecting old friends to encouraging political uprisings against totalitarian regimes, there is another and more negative side to these websites and the Internet in general.

'Gray divorce' continues to become more common -- here's why

Just as it's never too late to find true love, it's also never too late to get divorced. In fact, middle-aged and older people in Massachusetts and elsewhere are choosing to end their marriage, often after having been with their husband or wife for decades.

Advice for unwed Massachusetts parents

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 41 percent of children who are born in the United States are born to unwed mothers. This number represents a significant increase during the last 55 years when, according to the nonprofit Child Trends Data Bank, unwed mothers represented just five percent of the total number of U.S. women having children. Given the sheer number of children today whose parents aren't married, matters related to child custody are more important and complex than ever.
