The most difficult age for children to process divorce

Most children find dealing with changes very difficult. So, when couples in Massachusetts make the decision to divorce, telling their children must be done in a way that is not only age-appropriate, but which is in keeping with their best interests, including their emotional well-being. Children younger than three years of age may not understand what's happening, but older kids will recognize and understand the changes that are happening.

Essential employees facing child custody woes

Massachusetts parents may feel as if the past several weeks have been a whirlwind. Children that have parents that live separately may have had to adjust to a new schedule. Even families with court-ordered child custody schedules may have had to make some adjustments to accommodate school closings, varied employment hours, or illness. 

Getting through a high conflict divorce situation

When couples get married, they stand next to each other with every intention that they will be together for the rest of their lives. So, when Massachusetts couples find themselves in the throes of divorce, there might be some emotions that are running at high speed and that could include anger and hurt. Those volatile emotions could cause what experts term a high conflict or malignant divorce.

Managing the far-reaching impacts of 'gray divorce'

As of 2015, one in four people ending a marriage in the United States was 50 years old or above. Retirement-aged Americans may find themselves in a situation where a divorce is the best option for their future. In some cases, older couples in Massachusetts have an easier time parting ways, as children are already grown and shared wealth is enough to set both parties up for the future. In other cases, physical health, heavily intertwined finances and psychological impacts can make "gray divorce" a uniquely challenging path to walk.

Navigating student debt in a divorce

Close to 45 million Americans have student loan debt, some of whom will go through a marital break-up before it is paid off. For Massachusetts individuals considering their debts and assets as part of a divorce, student debt can raise property division questions. Is the loan jointly held if it was taken out during the marriage? Can a spouse be held accountable for previous promises to help with the debt? The answers to these questions depend, in large part, on what state you are in and the type of loan involved.
