Christmas plans lead to child support dispute

Making decisions that both parties agree on is a difficult thing for many Massachusetts couples. Making these decisions about matters concerning children after a separation or divorce is often even harder. Child support is one of those frequently contentious issues and some parents attempt to use the payment or non-payment of child support as a weapon to their ex-spouse, instead of as a way to provide for the needs of their children.

Loud rocker and singer-model quietly finalize their divorce

Massachusetts music fans may recall that when rocker Jack White and model-singer Karen Elson decided to get divorced, they held a party together to celebrate, complete with fancy invitations and a swing band. Unfortunately, that spirit of cooperation did not last. At one point earlier this year, Elson asked for a restraining order against White. He denied her accusations that he had threatened her.
