Child Support Attorneys

Our attorneys work with:

  • Divorcing or never-married parents who want to establish a child support order for dependent children
  • Parents who need to modify an existing child support order as well as parents who are having difficulties getting the child support they are owed, or paying the support they owe
  • Mothers and fathers who want to establish paternity

We understand how important your child’s well-being is to you and we will do our utmost to help you create the best situation for your child to flourish.

We can explain the Massachusetts child support guidelines and how a parenting plan influences a child support order.

If you are seeking child support for a special needs child, a deviation from standard child support guidelines may be possible.

We can also help you think ahead about your child’s future needs. Will your child go to college? Who will pay for this? What about special programs or extra-curricular activities? These are all part of the child support discussion.

North Attleboro Alimony Lawyers

Spousal support is intended to get a lower-earning or non-wage-earning spouse back on their feet financially. In Massachusetts divorce cases spousal support is not guaranteed and there are no spousal support guidelines, as there are for child support.

Each divorce case is decided individually, at the discretion of the family court judge. When alimony is awarded, it is usually temporary.

There are a number of factors that the family court judge will consider before arriving at a decision to award or deny alimony. Some of these factors include:

  • Length of the marriage
  • Age of the spouses
  • Children at home
  • Prior participation in the workforce and earning potential
  • Education of each spouse
  • Disability

Our divorce attorneys can help you understand Massachusetts spousal support laws and how it might apply in your situation, whether alimony is likely to be ordered, and if so, for how long.

Whether you want to seek – or prevent – a spousal support order, each of our North Attleboro alimony attorneys has significant trial court experience.
