Divorce: Legal Basics
Perhaps no other legal issues are as difficult as divorce and custody disputes, which entail disappointment, sadness, anger, anxiety and fear of an unknown future. The complex emotional aspects can be softened by understanding the divorce and custody process and your rights and obligations. Among the topics that we'll cover are: how to start an action for divorce; strategies to keep yourself and your children financially safe and protected; ways to resolve financial disputes; custody/visitation issues; division of marital assets; alimony; co-parenting versus joint custody; impact of prenuptial agreements; same-sex marriage/divorce and parental rights and de facto rights when parents are married versus unmarried; and when guardians ad litem or parent coordinators may be needed. You'll learn how to strategically decide your timing, what to anticipate throughout the process, and how life might look after the court grants the divorce.

More About Newton South High School
Located in Newton Center, Newton South High School is one of two public high schools in Newton, with the other being Newton North High School in Newtonville. Most students that attend Newton South come from Brown and Oak Hill Middle Schools which are located just on the other side of the high school's athletic fields.
Students at the school have access to a wide range of AP courses and electives, preparing them for a life of higher education and success after high school. The student body is broken up into four "houses" -- Goldrick House, Goodwin House, Cutler House and Wheeler House -- each with its own housemaster, secretary and guidance counselors.
Newton South High School is a half-mile walk to the #52 bus, which stops at the intersection of Parker Street and Roosevelt Road.
