“Happiness is someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for.”

-Chinese Proverb

Holmes v Holmes

  • SJC concludes that temporary alimony is separate and distinct from general term alimony, and that the duration of temporary alimony is not included in calculating the maximum presumptive duration of general term alimony.
  • The 2011 Alimony Reform Act established presumptive termination dates for general term alimony based on the length of the marriage.
  • While the 2011 Alimony Reform Act established presumptive termination dates for general term alimony, a judge is not obliged to order alimony for the presumptive maximum time period.
  • The 2011 Alimony Reform Act addresses only divorce judgments and the modification of such judgments; it does not address temporary alimony during the pendency of a divorce action.

 

  • The 2011 Alimony Reform Act states, “Except upon a written finding by the court that deviation beyond the time limits of this section are required in the interests of justice, if the length of the marriage is twenty years or less, general term alimony shall terminate no later than a date certain under the following durational limits:
    “(1) If the length of the marriage is five years or less, general term alimony shall continue for not longer than one-half the number of months of the marriage.
    “(2) If the length of the marriage is ten years or less, but more than five years, general term alimony shall continue for not longer than sixty per cent of the number of months of the marriage.
    “(3) If the length of the marriage is fifteen years or less, but more than ten years, general term alimony shall continue for not longer than seventy per cent of the number of months of the marriage.
    “(4) If the length of the marriage is twenty years or less, but more than fifteen years, general term alimony shall continue for not longer than eighty per cent of the number of months of the marriage.”

Money doesn’t grow on trees!

Facing divorce? Organize your finances.
Gaining control over your money and your spending is critical when contemplating divorce. If your marriage is ending, gather financial documents to help you evaluate your assets, liabilities and expenses. You’ll want to understand the financial position you’re in. It is tax time, so making copies of the documents you use to file your taxes is a good start. Money doesn’t grow on trees, but conserving dollars will make a big difference during the divorce transition.
Planning ahead will also make things a lot easier when you fill out your Rule 401 financial statement.  Depending on how much you earn, you will fill out the short form or the long form financial statement .  The Rule 401 financial statement must be filed with court in divorce cases.
Your case manager and divorce mediator will help you complete the Rule 401 financial statement properly, no worries, we’ve got your back.
If you have questions about divorce mediation or filling out financial statements, call 508-795-0200.

Divorce Corp.

Divorce Corp.’s Only Boston Screening was held on January 23, 2014, hosted by the National Parents Organization, the only organization showing Divorce Corp. in Boston.

I went to see the new documentary “Divorce Corp” last month.  While it depicts lawyers in an unflattering light, it sheds light on the “Big Business” of divorce.  The movie follows the money and the people that flow through family court systems.

If you know someone who is thinking about divorce, please share information about divorce mediation.

Check out the trailer for Divorce Corp.   http://youtu.be/lZTOT6DKfZ8.  Why spend money foolishly like those depicted in this movie? Divorce doesn’t have to get nasty.  Divorce doesn’t have to be expensive.  I’m not saying divorce is easy, but I do know this, there is a better way.

Call us 508-795-0200, we’ll help you save time and money.   Maybe you can’t save your marriage, but you don’t have to lose everything to get divorced.

Mediation works, experience counts, call Parker Mediation 508-795-0200.

Let it Snow!

Let it snow!  No matter what is going on, let it go, let it snow.  There is something wonderful about staying in the moment, bake cookies with the kids, make memories, watch movies, eat popcorn. ‘Tis the season of joy.

Perhaps you are thinking about divorce, worried about how you’ll get through it.  If you are thinking about making changes in your life after the holidays, that’s ok.  If you’ve decided to wait until after the holidays to approach the topic of divorce, put the task aside completely and focus on today.  Do something special just for you, go ahead indulge yourself.  You deserve it.

If you are not feeling joyous, just trying to “get through the holidays”, fake it until you feel it.  Smile, it will make you feel better and usually people smile back.  You only get today one time, use it wisely, have fun.  Tomorrow will be good too, you’ll see.  When you are ready, we’ll help you get to the other side of the divorce.

Considering Divorce and Bankruptcy?

Why talk about Bankruptcy?

Divorce mediation is a process for parties to formulate their own agreements.   Sometimes divorce discussions include consideration of bankruptcy filings by one or both parties.  Divorce and bankruptcy may occur at the same time.

When appropriate,  the parties may consult with a bankruptcy attorney.  Parker Mediation makes referrals if parties are facing foreclosure on a home or have overwhelming debts.   Coordinating your divorce and bankruptcy may save you money and help you make a better financial plan.

Divorce and bankruptcy may occur at the same time.  Properly planning for both will reduce hardship for all involved.  Parker Mediation helps you gather the information you need to make informed decisions.

We want you to explore all of your options.  Sometimes Bankruptcy is the best solution and we want you to know what to expect if you find yourself in Bankruptcy Court.

Divorce mediation covers all the topics you need to address in order to obtain a divorce in Massachusetts.  Child support, spousal support, health insurance, division of property and division of marital debt are essential topics that must be resolved.   In addition, Parker Mediation provides additional supports, including bankruptcy resources, to help folks that are divorcing plan a brighter financial future.

If you have questions about divorce, call us today 508.795.0200.  We want to help you.

Adoption Process | Permanency Mediation

Dusten Brown and his wife agree with Matt and Melanie Capobianco to use mediation to determine the best interests of daughter Veronica.  Even though the two couples are fighting over custody of Veronica, they agree on one thing, mediation.

After the biological mother placed the child for adoption, Veronica was placed with a South Carolina couple who raised her until she was two.  Prior to finalizing the adoption process, the biological father, a member of the Cherokee Nation, came forward.  He has cared for Veronica since 2011.

The case has been litigated in the state courts and tribal courts.  The U.S. Supreme Court determined the Indian Child Welfare Act did not apply.  The matter remains unresolved.  The South Carolina court gave custody to the Capobiancos and the Cherokee Nation court gave custody to Mr. Brown.

Hopefully by coming together in mediation the interested adults can utilize a child-centered approach to develop a permanent plan that provides for Veronica’s best interest.

Permanency mediation is a specific type of mediation utilized in adoption cases.  Mediators at Parker Mediation have completed specialized training and are experienced in permanency mediation.

Contact our case manager if you have questions about permanency mediation, the adoption process or need help in a child custody dispute.  508 795 0200

Summertime schedules

Parker Mediation empowers parents who are going through divorce to develop a parenting plan that works for the entire family. The work schedules of both parents, school or daycare schedules and the children’s activities are all considered in creating a plan that addresses transitions, transportation and supervision for the children.  Summer schedules sometimes present challenges for parents who both work.  If you want more information or need help developing an appropriate parenting plan this summer, call us at 508 795 0200.

Summer creates opportunities to enjoy more flexible scheduling with children.  Without the demands of school, homework and organized activities, why not plan a day trip with the kids.

You and your family can enjoy the summer, even if you are in the process of getting divorced.  Take the kids to a park, lake or beach.  Making happy memories is one of the best things you can do for your children.  Give them your time and attention, relax, slow down, focus on all the good things in your life.  

 

 

 

 

When was the last time you tried something for the first time?  Fly a kite, surf the waves, collect beach treasure or get lost in a book.  The sun, sand, wind and water are all good for you and your kids.  Enjoy yourself, you deserve it.

 

 

 

 

 

There is plenty of summer time left, the weather is perfect, get out and find your joy.  You deserve to find happiness, make new friends, and spend a meaningful day with your children.
