Divorce and separation often have implications for more than just the romantic couple, especially when children are involved. Indeed, close family members, including the individuals’ parents, may be impacted by the divorce. For grandparents of children involved in a divorce, knowing one’s rights can be complicated. While most parents will agree to allow grandparents to have visitation rights with their grandchildren, in some cases, visitation may be denied. When this is the case, what rights does a grandparent have when it comes to seeking visitation with their grandchild?

Reaching a property division agreement is a common part of any divorce proceeding. For some couples, dividing property is easy, especially when couples have not been married for very long or don’t own very many assets. Dividing property is also more straightforward when a prenuptial agreement exists because, assuming the prenup is valid, property will simply be divided per the terms of the agreement.

Once a couple decides to end their marriage, there may be issues of custody and visitation if there are children of the marriage, and over division of the marital assets. Marital assets are all property, including debts, that were obtained or accumulated during the marriage. This includes a business, whether it was started and owned by only one of the spouses before the marriage or was acquired or begun after the marriage began. Even if one of the spouses is a non-owner of the business, a major issue of dispute in such cases may be whether the non-owner spouse has an interest in the business and for how much. In most of these cases, retaining a divorce lawyer experienced in handling business interests in a divorce is essential.

Most people have heard of prenuptial agreements but usually in the context of a spouse of a well-known and wealthy individual contesting the agreement in his or her own marriage. Prenups are essentially contracts between couples as to how their property and assets are to be divided in the event of a divorce.

It may not be surprising to learn that the rights of grandparents to custody or visitation of their grandchildren are largely secondary to those of the parents who may be married, unmarried or divorced. This rests on the presumption that the decision of the parents has “presumptive validity,” or that the parent is fit to make decisions about the child and will act in the child’s best interests.

76755050Unless you and your spouse are in full agreement with such major marital issues as child custody, visitation, support payments, and the equitable distribution of your assets and debts, your divorce may be very costly.

Child Support

Child support can be tricky. Unlike other aspects of a divorce, many of which are finalized and remain the same forever after the original decision, child support can be revisited and revised years after the original decisions in the court.

Young couple after quarrel sitting back to back

Separating from a spouse can be a difficult and frustrating time. In order to make this time go by smoother, some people seek mediation instead of an actual divorce. While this can benefit some couples, mediation is often not the right path for couples who are nearing the end of their marriage. Knowing why divorce can sometimes provide a better option than mediation is important when considering what path you will end up taking.


Locating a divorce attorney who will guide you through this difficult time is important, as they will be your best resource for weighing your options. If you are seeking only the best Boston divorce attorney, Doug Lovenberg and the professional team at Lovenberg and Associates has you covered. No other divorce lawyer in Boston has the experience, dedication and know-how that Doug Lovenberg has, so let him use his skillset to help you in this difficult time.


While mediation can provide useful services to couples in need, there are two primary factors you should consider before seeking this route over an actual divorce:



Is Your Spouse Aggressive?


Whether your spouse is a bully or simply refuses to come to compromises, if you have difficulty communicating with your spouse, mediation is probably not the best option for your situation. Without the ability to effectively come to a  middle ground on issues, and plan your future in a reasonable manner, mediation will likely just end up benefiting your spouse and create additional problems within the marriage. If you are experiencing a poor marriage with a spouse that does not provide proper attention and understanding, divorce is your best option.


Is Your Spouse Responsible?


While both mediation and divorce can lead to legal fees that will need to be handled in a responsible fashion, mediation is not as permanent and effective as a divorce in most cases. With a divorce, you can be sure that the desired effects will be in place once the process is finished, but with mediation you may find that the time and money you spent on the process amounted to very little in the long run.



Whether you choose to go with divorce or mediation, your abilities to navigate the process will benefit greatly from a talented attorney.
