Facing a Divorce? Focus on 3 Areas to Settle March 6, 2018

Facing a Divorce? Focus on 3 Areas to Settle, Boston, Massachusetts

When going through a divorce, you will have to face some uncomfortable discussions and negotiations with your future-ex when hashing out your Separation Agreement. According to the divorce attorneys at the Law Offices of Robert E. Badger in Boston, MA, it’s important to know what your rights are — and to protect them. When ending a relationship and separating what is yours, there are three critical areas to consider.

1. Your house

The family home is a major point of contention to talk to your divorce attorney about. For one person to get full rights to the house, the other will likely have to buy them out. If you are the individual leaving and children are involved, it makes sense to get a new space that allows the little ones to stay in the same school district—this can improve your odds of getting custody.

2. Child Custody

Many factors impact this decision, from a parent’s financial stability to their work schedule. Even if you are not awarded physical custody, work with your lawyer to secure appropriate visitation rights for the children.

3. Your Financial Assets

Retirement accounts, savings plans, stocks and bonds—all of these elements need to be considered when divorcing. You will also have to work out the “negative” assets, like debts. Have your name removed from joint accounts that your spouse will be solely responsible for in the future.

Negotiating any of these points is a tedious task and can be very emotional. Having a divorce attorney lead the process will spare you stress. For legal help in Boston, MA, look to the Law Offices of Robert E. Badger. With more than two decades of experience, they will protect and fight for your rights with skill and compassion. You can reach them online or call (617) 963-3599 to schedule a consultation.
