Getting Divorced in Massachusetts
Before you can begin the divorce process in Massachusetts, you will have to meet the state’s residency requirement.
There are two ways for you to achieve this:
- If the cause of your divorce occurred in the state, you must be a resident of Massachusetts when you file for divorce.
- If the cause of your divorce occurred outside of the state, you must have lived in Massachusetts for at least a year before you file.
Of course, it is not always clear when a marriage failed. However, if you were living together in the state when one of you decided to move out, or when you agreed to divorce, you will meet the state’s residency requirement as long as you or your spouse still lived in the state at the time of your filing.
Key Issues in a Divorce
To finalize a divorce in Massachusetts, certain key issues must be resolved, which our team can assist you with.
Below is a list of some of the issues you will have to address throughout the divorce process:
- Asset and debt division
- Child custody and visitation
- Child support
- Spousal support
Moreover, even after your divorce is finalized, your circumstances may change so substantially that you may wish to modify the terms of your divorce. Our team can help you pursue a post-divorce modification.
