Court does not address constitutionality of child custody law

Last week the Massachusetts Supreme Court ruled that a man from Lynn would in fact face charges of parental kidnapping in the disappearance of his son nearly four years ago. That ruling reversed a Superior Court decision that said the man would not face parental kidnapping charges because there was no order denying custody of the child to him at the time of the boy's disappearance.

Court documents shed light on RFK Jr.'s divorce

Massachusetts residents surely have seen the coverage of Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s recent family struggles, which culminated in the tragic death of his estranged wife Mary Kennedy last month. Robert Kennedy had filed for divorce from Mary about two years ago, but the case had not concluded when she passed away. The couple had four children together in addition to Robert's two children from a previous marriage.

Law would make foreign child support collection easier

Divorced Massachusetts parents know that it can sometimes be difficult to collect child support awards. A good attorney and familiarity with state laws governing child support can help ensure collection, but difficulties can remain. One situation which can be especially troublesome, for a variety of reasons, is when the parent owing the support lives outside of the United States.

'Divorce hotel' may become an option for amicable dissolutions

For Massachusetts couples looking for opportunities for amicable divorces, there may soon be a new option. A concept known as a "divorce hotel" exists in the Netherlands, and could be available in the United States in the near future.

Court rules that state can provide same-sex divorces

A recent court ruling from another state may be of interest to same-sex Massachusetts couples considering divorce. The ruling will allow for that state to recognize and perform same-sex divorces, even though the state will not allow same-sex marriages to take place there until January of next year.
