A legal option in an amicable divorce

The threshold of divorce can confront a person with fear and reservation if they do not know which step to take first. With the many legal options a Massachusetts citizen can choose, deciding the best route to take your family down may not be an easy one. Some people believe that collaborative family law may be a legal option in an amicable divorce worth looking into.

Child custody battle centers on medical marijuana

The vast majority of child custody battles that come before family courts are waged between parents who are struggling over the care and custody of their shared child or children. This is not always the case, however, as one recent news piece demonstrates. One family is fighting to regain child custody of their infant daughter, after the baby was removed from the home over issues surrounding the use of medical marijuana. The case serves as a sobering reminder that one's right to parent is not inviolable, in Massachusetts or elsewhere, even in the absence of divorce.

Important questions for a Massachusetts divorce attorney

When a Massachusetts spouse is considering filing for divorce, one of the first steps involves meeting with a divorce attorney. It is important to be able to sit down and go over the divorce process and what one's goals are for the outcome. Doing so can give the spouse a sense of what to expect. It also gives the attorney a good feel for the expectations and desires of the client, which can help him or her tailor a legal approach that suits those aims.

Massachusetts visitation laws helpful for grandparents?

When Massachusetts residents think of a visitation issue involving a child, more than likely they think of a mom and dad fighting over time with a child. However, in today's changing times, grandparents are often in the equation as well. A recent case that is making headlines involves grandparents that have taken their son to court for visitation rights with their grand kids.

Property division choices can affect retirement options

For couples in Massachusetts who are at or nearing retirement age, the decision to divorce has different repercussions than those facing younger spouses. After the age of 50, retirement becomes a dominant factor in any significant financial decision, and divorce is no exception. Older spouses must make carefully considered property division choices when negotiating their divorce.

Governor Patrick signs law protecting domestic violence victims

Our Massachusetts governor recently signed into law a bill meant to protect victims of domestic abuse. This law would allow victims of such abuse living in apartments to get out of their leases without financial consequences. It also would make it easier for victims of abuse to have the abusers evicted, change the locks and get orders of protection.
