Is it a good idea to accept a lump sum alimony settlement?

Many people living in Massachusetts are not aware that lump sum alimony might be an option post-divorce. Like any legal agreement, the court must first approve of the payment and your ex will have to agree as well. Without knowing the details of your divorce and your lifestyle, it is not possible to answer your question with a simple yes or no. A better approach is to tell you about the potential pros and cons of accepting a lump sum alimony payment in lieu of monthly installments.

Try to plan ahead if you are thinking about divorce

Sometimes, a spouse can spring divorce on the other person out of nowhere. Other times, divorce has been on a person's mind for a long time. In the second situation, those who have been considering divorce for a while should think about getting prepared in case the idea becomes a reality. This is especially important when valuable or high net worth assets are at stake. Unfortunately, in many Boston divorces involving wealth one spouse may attempt to hide property or money from the other. Thinking ahead can help you avoid becoming a victim during a high asset divorce.

Get to the truth of those confusing child support myths

Child support is one of the most misunderstood areas related to divorce. Many Massachusetts child support cases are already complex enough without the many myths further complicating things. If you are divorcing with children, it is in your and your children's best interests to get to the truth of the matter. This will give you and your spouse the preparation you both need to get the through the child support process as smoothly as possible.

A skilled lawyer can help you reach your child custody goals

The children of divorce typically experience difficulties with the new family dynamics. Whether they voice them or remain silent, most children have many worries. Examples include fear about losing one or both parents and concerns about where they will reside. Parents often become caught up in their battles with one another and the legal side of the issue, causing children to feel even more bereft. The trick is to ground yourself in the present, tackles your obstacles as they come and keep your children in focus all at the same time.
