In Massachusetts, a divorce is a court judgment ending a marriage. In addition to legally ending a marriage, at the time of a divorce the court must make determinations about a variety of issues, including:
- custody and parenting time of any children of the marriage;
- child support;
- dividing marital assets (real and personal) and debts; and
- whether to award alimony.
To finalize a divorce in Massachusetts, the court must also consider the couple’s concerns about continuing coverage of health insurance, taxes, life insurance.
Parties to a divorce in Massachusetts may elect to resolve their differences with terms in a written Separation Agreement, otherwise, if the parties are unable to resolve these issues by agreement, the issues will be presented to the court for determination.
