Immediate considerations in a Massachusetts divorce

Divorce can be an emotionally tumultuous time. For Massachusetts couples facing divorce proceedings, it may feel as though everything is happening at once. Even just getting through the day can seem overwhelming. Here are a few tips to make the current transition easier and also help ensure that any decisions made today do not have negative long term effects.

Financial aspects to consider before a Massachusetts divorce

Whether it is because couples had a stressful holiday season, or simply because people view the New Year as a chance to start fresh, January is the most common month to file for divorce. In fact, experts report a spike of up to 30% in the number of couples filing for divorce at the beginning of every year. Whatever the reason, there are a few things Massachusetts couples considering divorce may want to keep in mind to help the process go more smoothly.

Considering a Massachusetts divorce? Legal consultation can help

Many Massachusetts individuals might be considering legal separation but have no idea where to start. Divorce can seem like such a complicated and overwhelming process that many people keep putting it off legally far after they've decided they're ready emotionally. If an individual feels that he or she is at the point in his or her marriage where divorce is looking like the best option, a consultation with a family law attorney might be the best way to proceed.

Retirement plan division in Massachusetts divorce can be tricky

When considering legal separation, most people are concerned with the emotional aspects. However, to avoid future complications after a divorce, residents of Massachusetts will want to consider the financial implications as well, especially those involving the division of retirement plan assets. If not executed properly, this process can cause financial issues and tax problems later on, far after the divorce proceedings have been finalized.

Preparing for a divorce in Massachusetts

Considering a separation or divorce is an emotional time for anyone. However, when planning for divorce and preparing to find a Massachusetts lawyer, individuals might find it beneficial to try to detach themselves as much as possible emotionally and concentrate on the practical matters at hand. Any decisions during the process can and will affect all parties involved for the rest of their lives, so it may help to try to remain focused on facts, details and goals.

Legal advice may help in Massachusetts divorce property division

When deciding to divorce, most people are looking to start over, start fresh, and move on quickly. Few people's first thoughts during divorce proceedings are of property division, especially when they are investment properties. However, for divorcing couples in Massachusetts, or anywhere, really, it's important to take these factors into consideration early on so that the most desirable outcome can be achieved.

Property division really matters when divorcing near retirement

Going through a divorce at any time can be emotionally and financially challenging. However, for those in Massachusetts and elsewhere who are considering ending their marriages just before going into retirement, there are some things that may require more thought and negotiation in order to walk away financially unscathed. For instance, property division, though an important part of any divorce, really can make or break one's retirement -- depending on how it is handled.

There are many reasons why couples file for divorce

There are various reasons as to why couples in Massachusetts and elsewhere may choose to end their marriages. At the end of the day, why any one couple would choose to divorce is a very personal decision. However, according to a recent study, there is a list of reasons as to why couples dissolve their marriages, and this list rarely seems to change.

Divorce the result of social media use is not uncommon

There are many reasons as to why a couple might choose to end their marriage. It does seem, though, that social media use is playing a bigger role in more divorces in Massachusetts and elsewhere. While there is a lot of good that can be said about social media and the ability to remain in contact with family and friends, as well as make new friends, this form of contact is causing a lot of strife in marriages. What is it about social media that might lead to divorce? Several attorneys from all across the country were asked this very question, and this is what they had to say.

Divorce rates are higher after winter and summer vacations

It seems that there are specific times of year during which the rates of certain things happening tend to increase. Divorce rates, for example, are believed to be higher after winter and summer vacations. While couples in Massachusetts and elsewhere can file to dissolve their marriages at any time, it is still interesting to look at why certain months see higher filing rates than others.
