When the Supreme Court of the United States issued a 5 to 4 ruling on the famous same-sex marriage case in June of 2015, the ability to get married—regardless of your sex, or the sex of your partner—became a right nationwide. In Massachusetts, same-sex marriages have been recognized on a state level since 2004. In New Hampshire, same-sex marriages have been recognized since 2010.
When two people are in agreement about the terms of divorce, the divorce proceedings are relatively simple. Typically, the partys’ attorneys will draft a divorce agreement (highlighting things such as child custody, spousal maintenance, property division, etc.), and both parties—as well as a judge—will sign off on it.
With more than 40 million users worldwide, the Ashley Madison hack—and release of thousands of email addresses, names, addresses, phone numbers, and other personal details—is nothing to laugh about for many.

If you’ve been caught on Ashley Madison, here’s what you need to know about how adultery affects divorce in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
If you’re the parent of a child of whom you do not have custody, it is likely that you will have to pay child support to the custodial parent.

At The Law Offices of Attorney Michael F. Mimno, we can help you understand the benefits of a shared parenting arrangement, how a parenting schedule is made, and what you can do if you’re dissatisfied with a court custody order.
If you’re recently divorced and will be filing your taxes on your own for the first time, there may be some confusion over how exactly you should file and how your divorce can impact your financial status. To help clear things up, here are seven tips for filing taxes post-divorce you should consider:
During a divorce, a couple must divide up their marital assets. While this can happen out of court through mediation or collaborative divorce, a family division judge most commonly is responsible to ensure a fair and equitable distribution. As part of the division of assets and property, both spouses must make a full disclosure of all assets that they are in possession of. Unfortunately, some spouses may try to hide certain assets in order to avoid division, or to avoid a larger spousal support obligation. If you’re seeking divorce in New Hampshire, the attorneys at The Law Offices of Michael F. Mimno can help you find hidden assets during divorce.
During a divorce proceeding, most couples have seperated. And before a divorce is legally finalized, many couples began living their individual and independent lives. As such, some individuals may feel ready to jump back into the dating game – especially if they’ve been separated from their spouse for a considerable amount of time – before the divorce is final. While choosing to date prior to being officially divorced is a personal decision, it may have legal consequences. The attorneys at The Law Offices of Michael F. Mimno can tell you what you need to know. Read more
