What are the types of divorce?

Divorces aren't all the same. Some divorces go smoothly with two people who separate willingly and kindly. Some divorces have prenuptial agreements that make splitting assets simpler.

Proving contempt: Getting the child support you deserve

You deserve the child support that a court awarded to you, and if that child support isn't being paid, you don't need to sit back and wait for it indefinitely. Having to wait for this support may not affect you financially, but that's no reason not to seek it out. The support is meant to help your child get the things he or she needs, whether or not that money is necessary in his or her daily life. It's up to you to make sure the child support money goes toward your child's needs.

How to get your child support payments modified

If you need to have your child support payments modified, you typically can by following a child support modification process through the courts or by making an agreement with your ex-spouse. If you can't support the amount of money you're expected to pay, it's important to act quickly to get your modification set into action; if you don't, you could start owing back child support, which can be expensive.

Grandparents: Assistance and aide in Massachusetts growing

As a grandparent, you want to know that the law is on your side if you ever need to take care of your grandchildren. You need support, and you need to protect the little ones you love. Across the United States, there are around 2.5 million grandparents taking care of their grandchildren as their own for varying reasons. Sometimes, their parents are unwell; other times they're in the military. In certain cases a parent may be in jail or be addicted to drugs, prompting grandparents to step in and take of their children's offspring.
