Uncontested and contested divorce in Massachusetts

Divorce is often very traumatic and always life changing. Despite that, the majority of cases usually never go to trial.

It's often very complicated, usually traumatic, and always life-changing. Despite that, the majority of cases never go to trial. Whether we go to trial or not, we focus on achieving your goals through settlement or in court as cost-effectively as possible. Our experience includes handling cases, from the very complex involving large estates and business valuations to the uncomplicated with few contested issues. Divorces fall into two categories – uncontested and contested.

Uncontested divorces are usually uncomplicated because there are few major areas of contention. The specific legal requirements, possible long-range complications and probable ramifications make it advisable to consult a family law attorney to ease the process and assure the best possible results.

Contested divorces are adversarial because there are many areas of contention. Since divorce can involve emotions, finances, homes, businesses, family and children, it is critical to retain an attorney who will listen to your concerns. It is crucial to have a professional advocate to represent you through the process and encourage settlement instead of a costly trial.

Most cases focus on alimony, child support, custody, parenting plans and property division. The agreement between parties can occur at almost any point during the divorce process, even though the case was originally contested.
