Massachusetts Child Custody, Support And Visitation Attorneys
Perhaps the most difficult challenge in a divorce involves what to do about the children:
- Who gets custody?
- How is time with the children shared?
- How do we continue to support them?
- What happens as our lives change due to a move or a job change?
The answers to these important concerns will be different for every family. Ideally, parents should work it out together for the benefit of the whole family. When they cannot, the courts must intervene and make decisions that are in the best interests of the children.
Protecting your rights as a parent is just as important as the interests of your children. We provide the insight and advice you need in custody, support, establishing paternity and other child custody-related concerns.
Property Division — Dividing Debts And Assets In A Divorce
One of the most contentious issues in any divorce is often property division. This is a complex issue that requires the help of a skilled attorney who is able to handle the legal as well as the emotional aspects of these cases.
Under Massachusetts law, all assets and debts must be divided equitably, including:
- Household goods
- Bank accounts
- Cash assets
- Retirement accounts
- Real estate assets
We take a comprehensive approach to property division. In addition to making sure you receive your fair share of property, we can also help you evaluate the tax implications involved in spousal support and child support. If you are currently facing bankruptcy, foreclosure or lawsuits, we can help you determine how those issues may affect property division in your divorce.
