What we do
Family disputes are stressful and mentally exhausting, even if it’s amicable. It is essential that you have an understanding of the process. Our attorneys understand the emotional, psychological, and financial repercussions such a decision has on the people involved.
Where do I file? What do I file? Where do I get the forms? What is the law? How is property divided? What is custody? Who has custody? How much is paid in child support? How is the debt divided? Can I move out of Massachusetts? These are just a few of the questions that will come up in a divorce.
If there are children involved, parties will have a connection for the rest of their lives. It is incumbent upon attorneys to recognize this and understand the intricacy of this relationship.
We understand this complexity, and we possess the expertise to provide an optimal solution for you, whether it be through mediation or litigation.
