Paternity can play key role in Massachusetts child support cases

Child support provides important financial stability for a divorced parent's children. Disagreements over the amount of support naturally occur, but in certain cases some fathers claim that they owe no support obligations because the child is not their offspring. Paternity cases are an important part of family law, and a case from another state reveals the extent of that importance.

Mediation can help divorcing Massachusetts couples

There is no doubt that divorce can be a stressful and highly emotional time. Some couples may be so far apart that they need to settle matters in a courtroom, but evidence is accumulating that couples who choose divorce mediation may help not only themselves but their children as well after the process is concluded.

Same-sex couples now considering prenuptial agreements

Massachusetts is one of a handful of states to recognize same-sex marriage. Although same-sex marriage has only been on the books for a few years, same-sex couples here and across the country are encountering some of the issues common to all married relationships when couples decide to divorce. Although some couples have resisted it, others are considering whether to create a prenuptial agreement before tying the knot.

Court finds ex-wife in violation of child custody agreement

Massachusetts parents make a number of vital decisions in their children's lives that can affect their future development. This collaborative effort between spouses can encompass choices on a child's school, extracurricular activities and religious upbringing. But just because a couple later divorces does not mean that the original collaborative decision-making process is lost. Through child custody arrangements, divorcing parents can specify what roles they will have in choices affecting their children's lives.
