Massachusetts divorce: Victims of domestic violence have options

It is not uncommon for victims of domestic violence to feel there is little they can do to improve their situations. Those subjected to this type of behavior often believe that they do not deserve to be treated any better, but that is simply not true. Whether a person lives in Massachusetts or elsewhere, if married to an abusive partner, it is possible to gain protection and -- if desired -- leave the situation by seeking a separation or divorce.

How are frozen embryos treated during divorce property division?

Massachusetts couples who are working through a divorce will have numerous decisions to make in order to come to a fair settlement. Property division can be draining, especially if the items being fought over are somewhat out of the norm. A case that is currently underway on the opposite side of the country is one of these situations, as frozen embryos are the "property" in question. Fertility issues are a very sensitive subject, and determining how one's chance at having children is to be treated because a marriage is ending can be, understandably, difficult.

How is a mortgage treated when getting a divorce?

There are some things in divorce that can be settled quickly and without incident; other things, though, can be difficult to negotiate. It has been said before that the marital home or other co-owned properties are some of the greatest assets shared between a married couple. This is true for those living in Massachusetts or elsewhere. How, though, would this type of property be treated if a mortgage is still being paid?

Who governs property division in a military divorce?

When military spouses in Massachusetts consider filing for divorce, they may be unsure of how military divorce differs from civilian divorce. However, divorce proceedings remain governed by state law regardless of the fact that one or both spouses are members of the military. Property division guidelines about retirement pay and a former spouse's entitlement to benefits are provided by federal law, and the division of marital assets is governed by state laws.

Parenting time an important aspect of Massachusetts child custody

As Massachusetts parents move through divorce proceedings, they may wonder which of them can provide the healthiest environment for their children. Because parenting time is a concern for many parents who are separating, child custody terms may be a point of contention. However, if parents are able to keep the best interests of their children in mind, they may come to more amicable decisions.
