Divorce basics for Massachusetts residents

While most people likely have much more romantic definitions of marriage, at its core, marriage is the legal union of two individuals. When two people decide to marry, they essentially enter into a binding legal contract the terms of which, surprisingly, many married individuals aren't fully aware of until they begin to contemplate filing for divorce.

Divorce and taking control of finances

An individual who is planning to divorce is likely to experience a wide-range of feelings and emotions—some of which may, at times, be conflicting. While thoughts and feelings about certain divorce-related matters may change and evolve, concerns about one's financial status are likely to be constant.

Is your soon-to-be ex-spouse hiding assets?

Divorce is consistently listed as being among the most difficult and stressful of any life event an individual may experience during his or her lifetime. This makes sense considering the significant life changes and mental and emotional difficulties that frequently accompany the divorce process. In some cases, this already tumultuous and trying time is compounded by a soon-to-be ex-spouse's attempts to hide assets.

Holiday season can be especially challenging for co-parents

As the days grow shorter and days cooler, the holidays are just around the corner. Often regarded as a joyous and celebratory time of year during which families gather to have fun, give thanks and be merry; for a divorced parent, the holiday season can pose many challenges. This is especially true for parents who share custody of a child and must therefore deal at times with carving the turkey and hanging the garland without a son or daughter being present.

Why couples who plan to wed should consider a prenuptial agreement

While many people utter the phrases, "for better or for worse" and "until death do us part" in their wedding vows, nearly half of all U.S. marriages end in divorce. Considering these odds, it wise to take steps to establish a prenuptial agreement prior to tying the knot.
