Domestic abuse victims should seek divorce help

People in Massachusetts may have heard about the recently-passed expansion of the Violence Against Women Act, which President Obama signed into law earlier this month. The bill provides outreach and assistance for victims of domestic abuse, one of the most pervasive and damaging family law issues in the United States today.

The top five reasons people get divorced

People in the Boston area may have seen a recent article about the many mistakes that married couples make and the top ones that lead to getting a divorce. It may come as surprise that the top reasons include cheating, dishonesty and abuse. The list also included addictions and people's priorities changing.

Enforcing child support requires eye for detail

People going through a divorce or child support modification in Maryland should be aware of the recent case of a divorced man who got an unpleasant surprise from the IRS, and an unfavorable ruling from the court on the issue. The man and his ex-wife had agreed that she would be the primary custodial parent and he would pay a determined amount of child support each month, but that he would be allowed to take the dependent child exemption on his taxes.

Planning for life on one income is essential following divorce

People in Boston know that the last few years have been full of financial challenges on the local, state and federal level. Some people have had to tighten their belts and deal with less. This is especially true for people going through a divorce. It doesn't take much family law knowledge to know that a divorce can be costly and that the financial ramifications can last long after the ink on the divorce decree has dried.
