Filing for Divorce in MA

The Massachusetts divorce court system can often be a lengthy, complex, and incredibly confusing process, especially for people who are unfamiliar with it. No matter if it is a divorce, paternity, guardianship, or modification, each type of case involves many different issues, each with their own rules and laws.

The frustration can be furthered when one spouse contests the terms of the divorce, which is normal for all cases that go to court. It is highly recommended that you retain a knowledgeable family law attorney who can effectively protect your rights and fight for your best interests, regardless of the issue. If you are going to court, you need to be confident when you walk through those doors.
