Seekonk, Massachusetts, Divorce Lawyers
Everyone knows that divorce is difficult. People experience anger, fear, resentment, vindictiveness, and many other negative feelings.

It is important to find a law firm that acknowledges the mix of emotions around divorce.

Issues in Massachusetts Divorce
The details of every divorce case are different. In some cases, the parties contest everything and resolution of the issues happens slowly. In others, the parties agree on everything and the case is over quickly. Some of the issues that can lead to a contested divorce include:
- Child custody and parenting time
- Paternity questions
- Alimony/Spousal support
- Property division
- Domestic violence allegations
Our Seekonk legal team manages all these issues and more, providing the representation and advocacy needed to protect our clients’ best interests.
Going Beyond Our Office Walls to Help Divorce Clients
Because our clients come from a wide range of backgrounds and have diverse needs, we have assembled a team of outside experts to call upon for help with specific situations. For example, if your child is having problems dealing with family discord or is suddenly finding school challenging, we can call on a child psychologist for an evaluation. If our client suspects that the other party is hiding assets so they will not be included in the division of property, we consult a forensic account to find those assets.
Our Commitment to Divorce Clients
Whatever the issues in your divorce, you can be sure that we will keep you informed throughout the process. You can also be sure of our responsiveness, as we take pride in returning client calls quickly. And, when the divorce is finalized, we make sure that you have updated legal documents, such as wills and health care proxies, that reflect your new situation.
