Massachusetts Family Law Attorneys
Family law issues can be some of the most difficult for people to deal with. Things like divorce, child custody and restraining orders are not easy areas for anyone, which is what makes the assistance of an experienced attorney so important. When facing potentially life-altering circumstances, you need an advocate that will look out for your best interests and the best interests of your loved ones.
At Infinity Law Group, we help clients to get the results they want from family law cases. Having worked with many clients in family law, we understand how difficult it can be on both you and your children. We provide compassionate, effective support that both respects your situation and ensures you get the outcome you need from your case.
What is Family Law
Family law covers a number of different issues, including:
The most common type of family law case, divorce can be fairly straightforward or incredibly complex. While our firm will attempt to help you reach amicable solutions with your spouse – thereby saving you time, money and stress – we are not afraid to push hard for our clients when necessary. No matter how difficult the divorce, we will be with you throughout the process.
Our firm understands just how important your children are to you, and we will do everything we can to see that they remain in your care. The Massachusetts courts are primarily interested in what is best for the children, but their decisions can be influenced in a variety of ways – by both you and the other parent. It is our job to make sure that your voice is heard and that your children are protected.
Child support is designed to help the custodial parent take proper care of the children. In an ideal world, the court would award you the child support payments that reflected the needs of your children, but this is not always how it happens. Our firm will do what is necessary to get you fair child support payments and to make sure that your spouse continues to provide those payments.
Modifications to Agreements
You may be able to change child support, child custody, visitation or other agreements. Situations change over time, which can make existing agreements no longer workable or fair. Whether something has changed or you believe the court decided incorrectly the first time around, our firm can help you seek a modification to an existing agreement.
Contempt of Existing Family Law Agreements
It is an unfortunate reality that some people do not meet their agreements following a divorce or separation. If your spouse is not meeting child support requirements or visitation requirements, you have the option of pursuing legal action. Our firm can help you make sure that all agreements are being honored.
Questions of paternity are best resolved with the assistance of an experienced paternity lawyer. Our firm can help you determine who is the father of a child. Deciding issues of paternity is particularly important if you are considering divorce, as the court will need to know who is the father to decide issues like custody and child support.
Just because you are the non-custodial parent does not mean you have no desire to have a quality relationship with your children. We can help you get the visitation rights you need to spend time with your children and have an influence on their upbringing.
Getting a prenuptial agreement often makes sense, particularly if either of you have assets that will need to be divided in the event of a divorce. A prenuptial agreement allows you to both decide how the divorce would go while you are still on good terms, and can make the divorce – should it happen – go much more smoothly.
Even if you are not married, you can still make a legal agreement on how you will deal with one another should you decide to part ways. A cohabitation agreement can provide much-needed protection in the event of a breakup.
Sometimes the situation is so severe that you need to seek legal protection for you and your loved ones. Our firm can help you to quickly get a restraining order that will provide you with peace of mind.
Divorce is sometimes the best option in a marriage, same-sex or otherwise. Our firm can apply all our experience in divorce matters to your same-sex divorce.
Dissolving a civil union still requires looking out for your rights and your interests. We can help ensure that you are protected throughout the process.
