Higher divorce rate due to better economy

The improving economy has created an upswing in divorce in Massachusetts and across the nation in recent years and more couples are moving forward with their divorces. In 2012, there were 2.4 million divorces in the United States; which was the third year in a row that divorce numbers have increased. Regardless of domestic and social impacts of divorces, the economic effects are improving because there are higher demands in housing, increases in household purchases and more people entering in the labor force.

Shared parenting in child custody cases in Massachusetts

Child custody laws are being re-examined so that divorced parents are allowed to have shared equal custody of their children. A father in Massachusetts has been negotiating with the courts to see his 8-year-old son more than just a couple hours a week. In 2006, he was granted visitation for only three hours a week. After going to court a dozen times, the court increased his child custody time so that now he sees his son every other Thursday, every other weekend and every other Monday.

Valuable details for Massachusetts couples considering divorce

Even with the most amicable split, Massachusetts residents can suffer greatly during the divorce process. Divorce doesn't have to be a war between two people, but it does take both parties to work through the necessary proceedings. Further, couples need to keep in mind that divorce should not be the first step following relationship troubles. However, some couples have tried everything, from watching romantic comedies to marital counseling, with no luck.

How to deal with child custody in divorce cases

In Massachusetts, divorces that involve children most often have child custody battles as well. When couples with children are in divorce proceedings, the first and most common question they ask lawyers is "Who will get custody of the kids?" Even though child custody cases are intense and stressful for families, the most important thing to consider is what is in the best interests of the children.
