A Divorce Plan Built For You
The divorce process in Massachusetts can be difficult and painful for both sides involved. Leaving a marriage is a hard decision to make, and you want to know that your lawyer has the experience and legal skills you need to move forward.
At Cornerstone Law Group, LLC, our attorneys have 50 combined years of experience walking men and women from Taunton and eastern Massachusetts through the divorce process. We meet with each client individually and learn about their family and what they want for their future. A successful divorce plan will cover several areas. These are listed as follows.
This is more than a question of “who gets the house?” with regard to divorce. Asset division covers all assets acquired during the marriage. Massachusetts follows an “equitable division” model, meaning that the eventual division will probably not be equal. The court will instead look to find a fair division. We can advocate for you to secure your fair share of the marital estate.
There is no guarantee that either party in the divorce will get alimony. However, in Massachusetts, you can pursue alimony at any time during or after the divorce. The length of time any alimony agreement lasts may vary depending on the type. We can work with you to determine what approach we should take when it comes to alimony.
Both parents should contribute financially to their children’s care. Child support court orders seek to cover such costs as:
- Health care
- Any other costs that a child may incur
We work with you to ensure that your children get the support they deserve.
The hardest question facing parents going through divorce is: “Where will my child live?” This dispute is one of the hardest fought in most divorces. When making this decision, courts rely on a standard of the child’s “best interests.” All decisions come back to what is in the best interests of your child.
