Number of women paying alimony has increased over time

At one time, the parties in a typical high-asset divorce in Massachusetts used to be a high-earning husband and his wife, who was often awarded alimony. Alimony provided needed support to the wife, who usually had little or no outside income. That situation may not be the norm much longer. According to the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, 47 percent of divorce attorneys are now seeing an increase in the number of women paying alimony to a former spouse.

Settlement reached in Linda Evangelista child support case

Divorcing Boston area couples with children want to have reasonable child custody and child support agreements, but sometimes the parents disagree strongly on what is reasonable. At times, these disagreements may require litigation to reach a resolution.

Divorce ceremonies can help preserve family relationships

Divorcing couples in the Boston area should be aware that divorce mediation can help preserve positive family relationships. More and more divorcing couples are beginning to understand that a "fight to the finish" attitude can do long-lasting damage. It is especially important to limit the potential strain on family relationships when there are children involved. Using divorce mediation instead of a more adversarial approach is one way that couples are trying to protect their children from the most difficult aspects of divorce.

Divorce auctions provide one method of property division

Divorcing couples in Massachusetts may have spent years and decades of their lives together. Over that time, some people will have accumulated quite a collection of personal property and effects. The question becomes: How to divide it all? The answer is not always easy because both spouses might have developed a sentimental attachment to certain items, which makes dividing them difficult. Or, on the other hand, spouses may have a menagerie of property which neither has any desire to keep after the divorce.
