Attleboro Divorce Attorney
Understanding the Massachusetts Divorce Process
For many people, a divorce may be their first experience with the law. It is essential that you have experienced and insightful counsel on your side. A knowledgeable Attleboro family law attorney can ensure your rights are protected and that you fully understand all of the details of your case.
- Spousal Support - Sometimes referred to as alimony, spousal support is a set amount of money paid from one spouse to another. In some cases, this can be a lump-sum amount, but it is more common for spousal support to be paid monthly. Though not all divorce situations include the payment of spousal support, it is possible to seek payments or attempt to prevent them from being ordered.
- Property Division - In Massachusetts, the division of property and assets during divorce is handled according to the law of equitable distribution. This means that homes, cars, real property, bank accounts, retirement accounts, and other assets are divided equally and fairly between the parties.
- Issues Involving Children - When a divorcing couple has children, the process can become even more complicated. It is important that the best interests of the children be kept in mind while the issues of child support and child custody are settled.
