Child support covers more than just basic needs

Massachusetts parents understand that it costs quite a lot to raise a child. There are the basic necessities of life, such as food, shelter and clothing, but there are also the so-called extras to consider: school supplies, medical care, extracurricular activities and even entertainment costs. Contrary to popular belief, child support is supposed to help in covering all of these costs and not just the basics. 

Upper middle class couples may fight more in property division

Being financially secure is a priority for most people in Massachusetts, but divorce can throw a wrench in even the best-laid plans. Worry over money and future financial stability can cause some individuals to panic and fight over seemingly unimportant issues during property division. According to one family law expert, one group is more likely to fight than others. 

Is the key to a better retirement hidden in property division?

Home ownership could be the key to a more secure retirement, studies say. Does this mean that Massachusetts women should retain the marital home regardless of their personal situations? Experts caution that this is not the case, and that each person should carefully consider what assets to keep during property division. 

Do I really need to establish paternity for child custody?

As an active and involved father, you need the legal protections of paternity. Without establishing paternity, you cannot exercise your parental rights or create a child custody agreement that would guarantee access to your child. This is important even if you are on good terms with your child's mother. 

Child support and agreement modification protect children

From purchasing school supplies to paying for extracurricular activities to simply putting food on the table, there's no getting around it -- raising kids in Massachusetts is expensive. It can be difficult enough to transition from two incomes to one, but throwing children in the mix complicates matters even more. Child support exists to make sure that you have the financial means to continue providing for your children, and any changes to you or your ex's income may require a modification.
