Divorce Lawyer - Ending a Marriage in Massachusetts
From the cost of establishing separate households to the challenge of raising and educating children after divorce, ending a marriage almost always exacts a financial and emotional toll. I help a couples get divorced without adding unnecessary financial expense by providing legal services at affordable rates. Contact me to arrange a consultation.
Though I spent the majority of my professional years working as an attorney for large corporations and law firms, I moved to Cape Cod because it offered me the opportunity to provide legal services to individuals and small businesses instead of faceless Fortune 500 corporations and huge insurance companies. Operating out of my home office in Barnstable County, I am proud that I have been able to align my firm with my fundamental values. I am also able to maintain low overhead expenses so I can economize without compromise.
Ending Your Marriage Does Not Have to be Costly
One of the most cost-effective and respectful ways to end a marriage in Massachusetts is by filing a joint petition for divorce (also called an uncontested divorce). The more the parties can agree on the terms of the Separation Agreement covering the division of the assets of the marriage, setting child support and alimony obligations, and establishing custody and visitation, the less the parties will spend getting divorced. Whether your relationship is ending amicably or not, I am able to guide you through the confusing maze of the divorce process and protect your interests. If child custody cannot be resolved by agreement, I am able to make referrals to qualified family law attorneys.
My experience in complex business litigation gives me the skills to effectively handle divorces that involve disputes about the division of marital assets and property and debt. The end of a marriage is often similar to the dissolution of a business partnership: property and assets must be divided fairly.
One of my strengths as a divorce attorney is representing clients who are dealing with modification of alimony. In Massachusetts, spousal support does not automatically end when a former spouse remarries. I help clients file complaints for modification in the event of a material change in financial circumstances of the parties.
