Family and Divorce Law in Cape Cod Massachusetts
Our law firm deals with all areas of family law, which are often complicated and stressful. Divorce and its related effects often involve the care of children, as well as the well-being of both parties. Because family law cases are often complex, an attorney can make all the difference.
Massachusetts couples may pursue either a no-fault or fault divorce. No-fault divorces allow for joint petitions, while fault divorces require proof of abandonment, adultery, or domestic violence. Regardless of the circumstances, retaining an attorney is an intelligent decision.
Massachusetts law recognizes legal custody, which involves medical, schooling, and religious upbringing decisions, when applicable, as well as physical custody, which determines which parent the child lives with. In many cases, both parents share legal and physical custody. Hiring an attorney helps ensure that a child’s best interests are represented.
Although state guidelines determine child support, support can be modified as needed. An attorney can help make sure the child’s interests are represented with the arrangement. Legal advice is also helpful if a parent is not receiving the support owed to their child.
Paternity cases can have wide-reaching effects on child custody, child support, and probate cases. Resolving such issues as quickly as possible is usually in the best interests of all involved. Involving a lawyer in these cases may provide a better resolution.
Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements make it easier for parties in a marriage to protect their interests in the event of a divorce. These agreements also make it easier to address assets that the parties own separately. Having an attorney prepare these agreements helps ensure that everything goes smoothly.
Melissa is a hard-working, personable attorney who helps her clients understand legal documents and advocates on their behalf. She helped me review legal documents, informed me of my legal rights, and suggested areas for follow-up. I felt comfortable with the entire process thanks to Melissa’s warm demeanor and her ability to explain information clearly. I would use her for any legal services in the future without hesitation – she is a top-notch attorney! [ Google Review ]
I can’t say enough good things about Levin Piro, and specifically, Chris Wurster. I went to this firm with a very personal situation and was treated with respect, advised honestly, and communicated with constantly throughout my time working with Chris. I find the experience of having to work with an attorney daunting but I did not once feel that this experience was anything other than helpful and sincere. I refer anyone I know here and recommend them without a second of hesitation. Also, their services are worth every last penny. Thank you, Chris, for all you did for me! [ Google Review ]
I started working with Alanna toward the beginning of this year and I wanted you to know how helpful she has been during my divorce. She has the perfect balance of assertiveness and empathy. She helped to bring my contested divorce to an uncontested one. Our hearing was this morning and I’m honestly going to miss working with her. I don’t think many people will say they will miss their divorce attorney but she’s become part of my support system. She made me laugh when I needed it most and listened to me during the process of what was most important as a divorce outcome. She’s very good at what she does. [ Google Review ]
