Needham Heights Divorce Attorney

 Divorce is never easy. There are so many emotions involved and it can be incredibly stressful and difficult time. If you are going through the divorce process, you want to make sure that you get the settlement that you deserve.

Divorces are expensive and time consuming.  You need to hire a divorce lawyer who has experience handling a contested divorce as well as an uncontested divorce. You also need to be aware of your rights and obligations under Massachusetts state divorce law.

Divorce Process

The sooner you start the divorce proceedings, the less likely you are to lose money or marital property. You can file for divorce in Massachusetts if you have lived in the state for 1 year or the reason the marriage ended happened in Massachusetts and you lived in the state as a couple.

In Massachusetts, you have the right to be represented by a divorce attorney. A Competent lawyer will help you with all aspects of your case including:

  • Preparing and filing divorce papers
  • Negotiating the divorce settlement
  • Property Division
  • Protecting your interests during court hearings
  • Obtaining child custody such as Sole custody or Physical custody
  • Creating a legal custody arrangement
  •  Visitation orders for minor children
  • Collecting child support payments for minor children
  • Determining how much alimony you should receive
  • Paying off debts
  • Equitable distribution
  • Selling assets – Division of property
  • Appealing decisions made by the courts

It is important to remember that there are two types of attorneys: general practitioners and specialists. General practitioners are those who handle most cases. They usually charge lower fees than specialists.

However, they cannot accurately represent you in specialties such as family law, like experienced family law attorneys will. Specialists typically handle more complex cases and require higher attorney fees.
