Not all families are composed of the traditional husband and wife. Even though the composition of non-traditional families isn’t the same as traditional families, they still face some of the same family law issues. We know that trying to go through the Massachusetts laws pertaining to non-traditional families can be difficult, especially when you have a pressing matter to deal with.
We can help you with all aspects of family law as it pertains to non-traditional families. One of the issues that can come up involves divorce. Ever since our state began recognizing same-sex marriage in 2004, the need for same-sex divorces has come up. During these proceedings, it is critical that you ensure that your rights are being protected.
There are several facets of a same-sex divorce that we must consider. One of these is property division. Whether you have a high-asset case or you have fewer assets, we can help you to ensure that they are valued properly. While we are considering the division of property, we also need to consider the division of liabilities. We know that you don’t want to be stuck with all of the bills and none of the assets.
If you have children, we need to get to work on the child custody, visitation and child support aspects of the case. These can often be aspects of the divorce that are filled with contention since both parents likely want to have the children as much as possible. We can work on your behalf to ensure that you have time to parent your child.
