Selecting The Best Divorce Lawyers For Your Case
We are experienced divorce lawyers with a proven track record of success in Massachusetts family and probate courts.
Choosing the right divorce lawyer for your case will not only make the entire divorce process a bit easier but will also provide you with much needed assurance that your interests will be duly represented. If you are considering divorce or if you have recently been served divorce papers, this is what you need to know now;
- Filing for Divorce — To be eligible to file for divorce in Massachusetts, you must have lived in the state for at least a year. You might also be eligible if the reason the marriage ended occurred in Massachusetts provided you and your spouse have lived in Massachusetts as a couple.
- Grounds for Divorce — Divorce can be granted with or without a finding of fault in Massachusetts. No-fault divorces are the most common. At-fault divorces require evidence of one spouse’s wrongdoing. We can help you understand whether there are advantages to seeking one kind of divorce over another in your case.
- Division of property — Massachusetts law makes all property owned by either spouse or both at the time of divorce subject to equitable distribution, which means it must be divided fairly though not necessarily equally. Even if you and your spouse are able to agree on certain property divisions, we can review your arrangement and give you peace of mind about your decision.
- Alimony — The amount of alimony or spousal support payments can vary based on a number of factors, and alimony can be short-term or long-term, depending on whether the recipient spouse has significant needs. It can get complicated, but an attorney can help you understand your options.
