Comprehensive Family Law Services

Divorce involves disassembling a life you and your spouse spent years building together. During that time, children were born, homes were purchased, and assets and debt were acquired. Our firm understands the desire to build a new life from the foundation of divorce decrees. To that end, we aim to find solutions that satisfy clients’ short- and long-term needs related to issues such as the following:

  • Child custody — We strive to find child custody and visitation arrangements that are in the best interest of the children. This may include joint custody or sole custody.
  • Child support — Massachusetts and New Hampshire child support guidelines determine the amount of child support. The guidelines factor in amounts such as income of each parent and time spent with the children.
  • Equitable property division — In Massachusetts, marital property undergoes an equitable distribution.
  • Alimony (spousal support) — In some situations, such as long-term marriages, spousal support may be awarded to the dependent spouse.
  • Modifications and enforcement to divorce decrees — Changes to court orders may be required because of a material change in condition. Enforcement orders may be necessary when a party does not follow court orders.
