Domestic violence, divorce and child custody

Massachusetts parents divorce for a variety of reasons. In some cases, a marriage ends because one spouse was physically abusive to the other one. When parents divorce because of domestic violence, child custody issues can be complicated, and it is not always easy to predict which parent will get primary physical custody.

Reasons to have a prenuptial agreement

A prenuptial agreement may protect many Massachusetts residents when they get married. These types of agreements are not just for the very wealthy. People of many different income levels may have accumulated possessions that they wish to hang onto in the event of a divorce rather than dividing them with a spouse.

Considerations for divorcing baby boomers

Baby boomers in Massachusetts are more likely to get a divorce than their counterparts from 25 years ago, according to the National Center for Family & Marriage Research. For many of these older couples going through divorce, allocation of retirement savings will be a major concern. Generally, retirement accounts are considered marital property. This means that even if one spouse was diligently putting away money and the other was not, the accounts are likely to be split between the two.

The best business valuation method during a divorce

A common issue in divorce cases is how to determine the value of a business that is owned by one or both spouses. For property division purposes, it could be necessary to consult an experienced valuation analyst and to decide whether to appraise the business through a full valuation or a calculation of value. Massachusetts residents who own a business and are considering a divorce may benefit from learning about the options available to them.
