Consider the pitfalls that could arise after a divorce

Massachusetts couples may find it challenging to see the future as a marriage ends. The emotions that accompany a divorce may also make people worry more about the immediate future. This is helpful, but without looking further into the future, any divorce settlement the parties negotiate could end up causing significant problems in the long run.

For instance, many people expect to be able to live the same way they did during the marriage. However, with the same amount of financial resources now supporting two households instead of one, it may be unrealistic. Each party may have to make financial sacrifices after the divorce. It may be beneficial to consider what it will actually take to live reasonably comfortably.

An individual may also want to be sure not to bite off more than he or she can chew. It may be honorable to agree to pay for college tuition once a child graduates from high school, but without knowing what each party's financial situation will be at that point, it could end up being a disaster. Instead, it may be a good idea to try to take events such as a job loss, illness or remarriage into consideration before making any agreements that require future income.

No one can predict the future, but it may be possible to prepare for it, at least somewhat. In order to understand what kinds of obstacles any agreements made in a divorce settlement could encounter, it may help to sit down with a Massachusetts divorce attorney. He or she can helpĀ consider the future ramifications of any decisions made today.
