Resolving Domestic Problems in Challenging Times

Disputes about custody and parenting, child support, educational costs, and other family law issues are stressful even in ordinary times. Family conflict upsets the rhythm of daily life, particularly for children. Your personal and emotional supports may no longer exist or may be unreliable. You may feel a loss of control over the most important, and most basic aspects of your life. These experiences were natural before Spring 2020 and the advent of the Coronavirus. The pandemic presents new concerns: the health of our families, friends and loved ones, the extension of Governor Baker's "stay-at-home" directive, closed businesses and schools, our children's education, potential loss of income, and following court orders when access to the courts is limited. 

Growing Number of Grandparents Becoming Guardians For Grandchildren

In the wake of the opioid epidemic that was declared a public health crisis in 2017, there has been an uptick in the number of children needing care that their parents are unable to provide to them.

Divorce does not have to prevent children from going to college

When two people decide to get divorced, their finances can unfortunately take a hit. If they have children and were planning for the children's college expenses prior to the divorce, their college-savings plans may take a hit, too. However, a couple of steps may help them to keep their marital dissolution from sabotaging their children's college education in Massachusetts.

How parents can get along after divorce

You may not think about how to have a successful co-parenting relationship in the midst of a contentious divorce, but perhaps you should. Family court judges in Massachusetts have expectations of divorcing parents, and those who do not live up to it run could run afoul of the court.  Even worse, the children may be negatively affected by their parents’ ongoing battles.

Identifying assets important step in preparing for divorce

The process of dissolving a Massachusetts marriage can be a harrowing time emotionally. However, it is essential to avoid losing sight of the big picture when navigating this type of family law proceeding. A couple of tips may make it possible to be financially prepared for the divorce process as much as possible.

Dividing assets 50/50 during divorce may not be fair

When people think about how to proceed with their negotiations when dissolving a marriage, they typically look at the biggest assets first. These include the marital home or the car. However, other important assets to consider during a divorce proceeding include retirement plans and stock awards, and these assets can be complicated to address.
