Domestic Relations


Domestic Relations, or Family Law, consists of the areas of Marriage, Divorce, Paternity, and Adoption.

In full, it emcompasses:

  • Divorce
  • Property Division
  • Child Custody and Visitation
  • Alimony
  • Child Support
  • Prenuptial Agreements
  • Modifications of Judgments
  • Contempt
  • Determination of Paternity



Many changes are constantly occurring in these areas, as is witnessed by the recent passing of the new Massachusetts Alimony Statute, and the recent revision of the Child Support Guidelines.

The law in this - and every other area - is very fact-specific, and you should not make life decisions based on old advice. With the recent changes in the law leaving many "gray areas", advocacy plays a bigger role than ever in cases where the appellate courts have not yet decided.

The stakes in Family Law engender deep emotions. Also, with our transient society, issues abound as to which state's laws apply in a given situation. The advice of an impartial attorney as to your rights, and actions, is essential to navigating yourself through this legal and emotional minefield.
