Divorce-related issues can be stressful and complicated. Any family can begin to feel overwhelmed when dealing with child custody, property division and other issues. In these trying times, working with an effective family law attorney can make all the difference. We provide clients with comprehensive divorce and family law services, including the following:
- Property Division – We help couples determine what property can be divided, and how it’s going to be divided. Generally, assets that a spouse owned before marriage or those gained through inheritance are not subject to division. However, there are no hard and fast rules in Massachusetts, so consulting an attorney is the best option for individuals wishing to protect their assets.
- Alimony – Alimony, or spousal support, is determined on a number of factors: The length of the marriage, occupations of each spouse, income of each spouse, employability of each spouse, opportunity for future acquisition of income or assets, contribution to the value of assets they have now, and present and future needs of each child.
- Child Custody -The courts award custody based on the best interests of the child. We help parents deal with the legal components of child custody determinations.
- Child Support – Child support is determined based on guidelines established by The Massachusetts Court System. The age of the child, income level of each parent, expenses, custody, and visitation are just some of the factors considered.
