Divorce can bring changes to holiday schedule

Ending a marriage is rarely easy, no matter how many years a couple has been together. The divorce process means many difficult decisions must be made, not to mention the emotional fallout that most people go through during this time and typically for some time following the final divorce decree. Many divorced people in Massachusetts and elsewhere feel overwhelmed with having to adjust to all the changes in their lives, and this is never truer than during the holiday season. Divorcing or recently divorced individuals may find some comfort from the following tips for making it through the holidays.

"Nesting" may help children transition through divorce

When a couple decides to part ways, they must make a number of difficult choices. Divorcing parents face particular challenges as many of their decisions during the divorce process revolve around their children's needs, both emotional and physical. Experts advise divorcing parents to be mindful of the potential negative effects of their separation on the children and keeping the process as amicable as possible can help. Toward this end, divorcing Massachusetts parents may wish to consider one possible family living arrangement called "bird nesting," also known as "nesting."

Grad student cyclist suffers fatal personal injury

Many Massachusetts students own a bicycle as their primary, or only, means of transportation. Although this choice is often necessary due to budget restrictions, many cyclists find a major benefit is the exercise a bike provides. Unfortunately, since cyclists must often share the road with larger vehicles, such as cars and trucks, accidents can occur, often resulting in personal injury or even death. Such a tragedy happened recently at a busy Boston intersection.

Tips for a less painful divorce for Massachusetts couples

Whether a Massachusetts couple decides to separate by mutual agreement, or one partner initiates the split, many decisions need to be made. Although each person likely feels overwhelmed during the time immediately following a breakup, it is important to think clearly and rationally at this time, as the decisions that are made during the separation and divorce process will shape the years to come for all parties involved. Fortunately, an expert offers some practical tips for moving forward effectively.

During a divorce, parents shouldn't forget college expenses

Couples who decide to separate have many different topic areas to discuss and, hopefully, agree upon: division of property, child custody, support agreements, living arrangements and more. When divorcing parents are working out details involving their children, one area they may leave out is who pays for a child's college education. However, experts say that parents in Massachusetts and elsewhere should include the answer to this question in their divorce decree, no matter the child's age.
