What is Family Law?
One of the many types of practice areas we service at our multi-practice
firm is family law, which encompasses all legal issues relating to the
family dynamic and close, interpersonal relationships, from adoption and
divorce to child custody and restraining orders. Family matters are extremely
personal and emotionally charged, which is why having an experienced attorney
on your side to examine your issues from a legal perspective can be beneficial
and facilitate a more desirable result. Family law is also notorious for
the amount of paperwork and documentation required; a seasoned lawyer
can negotiate these challenges, offering insights and guidance so you
so don’t add further stress to your life.
Cases We Handle for New England Clients
With the assistance of our estate planning and business lawyers, our team
of family law lawyers is uniquely qualified to ensure you receive the
best possible result for your family’s crisis, such as:
Contested Divorce: When your spouse’s expectations differ from your own in terms of
the reason(s) for the failed marriage or the terms of settlement and litigation
is inevitable, then our veteran team of attorneys are committed to ensuring
Uncontested Divorce: Not all divorces result in litigation. When divorcing parties are in total
or even substantial agreement on the terms of their divorce, then an uncontested
divorce can streamline the process.
Prenuptial Agreements/Postnuptial: A prenuptial agreement is a contract entered into by parties in anticipation
of their marriage as a plan to identify and protect each individual’s
assets in the event of divorce, separation, or even death. Not all prenuptial
or postnuptial agreements are created equally and in fact, some may be
unenforceable. We advise clients in the creation of as well as the dissolution
of their prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.
Alimony/Spousal Support: Our lawyers will help you navigate the complexities and options available
to those in need of spousal support, those paying spousal support or those
seeking a modification of their support.
Child Custody & Parenting Time: For most families, child-related issues are the most emotional and difficult
to resolve. We can explain the “law” and apply the relevant
statutory and case law to your unique facts and circumstances to protect
your rights and your children’s future.
Child Support: Your child(ren)’s welfare is our priority, and our lawyers will work
tirelessly to see that your children have the financial resources needed
to ensure the comfort and welfare they deserve.
Property Division: Our lawyers can help you understand what an “equitable” allocation
of marital property means as we work to ensure your rights are protected
and you are awarded that which is rightfully yours.
Mediation/Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR): Years before the “collaborative divorce” model came to being,
our experienced family law lawyers routinely incorporated the same principles
and designs of divorce through mediation or ADR by utilizing the services
of qualified, neutral, third parties to provide an objective and experienced-based
opinion as to what is fair and equitable in your particular case. Ask
us about court-sponsored Neutral Case Evaluation.
Domestic Violence: If you are a victim of domestic violence or have been accused of domestic
violence, then we can help you obtain or challenge an Order of Protection
to either protect you and your family’s safety or restore balance
and fairness to you and your family during this period of crisis.
Modifications of Prior Orders: Life is uncertain, and circumstances can and will change. Court orders
can and may change as well to reflect the needs of both parties and their
children. Contact our lawyers to discuss modifications to child support,
alimony/spousal support, and custodial modifications.
Relocation with Children: As circumstances change, so to may a parent’s place of residence.
If you or your child’s other parent want to relocate with the child(ren),
then you should be advised as to what your rights are to either facilitate
or contest such a move. Our experienced lawyers can help you understand
and resolve such a challenge.
Grandparent’s Rights: If you are a grandparent and due to a change in your family dynamic, you
are no longer afforded opportunities to spend time with your grandchildren,
then you may wish to exercise your rights to ensure continued contact
and quality time with your grandkids. We can offer assistance in such
