Divorce mediation in pet custody battles in Massachusetts

A survey done last year by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers showed that pet custody battles are increasing. Worcester couples who own cats, dogs and other pets could be including such issues in their divorce settlements. Dogs, among the most common pets, show unconditional love to their owners, and their role is important for divorcing couples, who may be feeling vulnerable as their partners leave them.

Child custody dispute leads to kidnapping charges

Marital disputes involving children are common in Massachusetts. In the event of separation and sometimes divorce, a child custody dispute may occur when both parties seek to gain physical custody of their children. A child custody battle can be difficult for children, sometimes making them feel as if they are being torn between their parents. The court decides which parent is granted sole custody of the children. However, recent cases have shown that some courts have begun to push for more shared parenting among divorced or separated couples.
