Simple financial tips to consider during a Massachusetts divorce

In Massachusetts – or anywhere else, for that matter – the fact is that divorces cost money. However, when divorce becomes inevitable, there are certain methods anyone can employ to be more prepared and to weather the divorce process in a more financially sound manner. A few simple financial tips can make a big difference during the divorce process.

Low income fathers may benefit from child support modification

Child support is important; it helps custodial parents in Massachusetts and elsewhere pay for the food, medical care and other necessities all children need. What happens, though, when a father is struggling economically and cannot make the court-ordered payments in the full amount? Instead of these fathers losing access to their children and the children losing the positive influence their male parent provides, many advocates are pushing for a modification of the child support system.

Hostile behavior, not the divorce itself, linked to illness

As is often the case, the details can make all the difference. A newly released study linking psychological stress during childhood to illness may have some divorcing Massachusetts parents in a panic. The key, however, seems to be whether the divorce was cooperative or non-cooperative.

Equal parenting time and joint child custody offer clear benefits

Traditionally, divorcing parents in Massachusetts would likely have assumed that Mom would get custody of the kids, while Dad saw them for visits and every other weekend. However, after a number of studies, research indicates that children who spend more even amounts of time with each parent – roughly at least 35 percent – as opposed to living with one and visiting the other, not only have better relationships with each parent but do better psychologically, academically and even socially. With such clear benefits, it's hard to deny the advantages of joint child custody.
