It's a scene played out in Massachusetts and all over the country, likely on any given day. A group of young people are out for an evening of good times that sometimes involves a thrill-inducing drive through city streets. This may have been what was happening on a Boston street when a horrific car crash resulted in fatal personal injury for one woman and serious injury for another woman.
Any Massachusetts couple in the midst of legally ending their marriage would likely agree that all aspects of the process are unpleasant, at best. However, for many divorcing couples, spousal support (also called alimony) tends to be one of the more challenging steps in the divorce process. Therefore, to assist divorcing individuals in successfully negotiating this type of support, industry experts offer some tips.
As any separated Massachusetts couple knows, typically, both parties are exhausted, emotionally, physically and sometimes financially, by the time their union is legally dissolved. Most people who have endured the divorce process probably felt that the final divorce decree spelled the end. However, in truth, divorced individuals need to be aware of the tasks they still need to deal with post-divorce.
From the beginning of the separation process to the final dissolution of a marriage, both parts of a couple, typically, will experience a great deal of stress. Most Massachusetts couples in this situation face many difficult decisions as well as a general upheaval of their accustomed lifestyle. Unfortunately, sometimes, while a person is going through the divorce process, he or she encounters additional challenges, such as a job loss. Other than the obvious fallout from employment loss, people finding themselves in this situation during divorce negotiations may worry about how the courts will handle the change in financial circumstances.
