When should I contact a Family Law Attorney?

  • I am seeking a divorce or my spouse has filed for divorce.
  • I am getting married and want to have a pre-nuptial agreement.
  • I want to establish or modify a child support order or believe that the terms of an order have been violated.
  • I have an upcoming court date in the Probate & Family Court.
  • I are concerned about the welfare of a child and feel that he/she should be placed in the care of a guardian.

Why should I hire a Family Law Attorney?

Family law cases are often highly complicated, time sensitive, and emotional. Legal proceedings can vary based on the individual situation. For these reasons, it is important to hire an attorney who is familiar with Massachusetts guidelines and who has past experience with family law matters.

How do I choose a Family Law Attorney?

Hiring an attorney without past experience in similar types of cases can potentially result in undesirable outcomes. A good place to start your search is through the Boston Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service, which has attorneys with experience in a wide variety of family law matters, and with a variety of payment options that can be flexible.
