What do I need to know about marital dissolution?
- The divorce process entails two main objectives: first, an equitable division of the marital assets and liabilities; second, where children are involved, and/or where one spouse seeks continued financial support, the process seeks to find a fair and reasonable resolution.
- Once the marital property is divided, modifications to the division is not possible because property division is considered final. A rare exception exists where the property division ordered by the court is considered grossly inequitable.
- However, matters affecting the best interests of a child, child support, and spousal support are areas that may be modifiable, based on a material change in circumstances.
- The Massachusetts legislature is considering a substantial change in the law in the area of alimony (spousal support). For more information please see: garymhorwitz.com/inthenews/
- In Massachusetts, a spouse may allege fault grounds. A spouse may also allege that irreconcilable differences have led to the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage, such that no fault is alleged.
- Every marriage is unique. For a complete understanding of the issues and options available to your particular situation, contact us for free initial consultation.
