In America today, the dissolution of marriage has become a part of daily life. As same-sex couples are finally awarded similar rights and entitlements to opposite-sex couples in Massachusetts, the termination of legal unions between same-sex couples is also becoming a frequent reality. As a result, almost everyone has been involved, directly or indirectly, in a domestic relations proceeding. Accordingly, you can expect to be, and likely have been, exposed to a great deal of folk wisdom concerning marital status actions.
While the statutory law governing marital status actions in Massachusetts is complex, lengthy, and supplemented by a wealth of judicial opinion, the information on this website is designed to provide you with foundational knowledge about dissolution and other status actions so that you can be less vulnerable to both misinformation and uncertainty.
Because every domestic relations status action is different, and because every client has unique concerns and circumstances, the statements made herein should not be construed as legal advice relative to your particular matter. We will competently and compassionately advise you as to the provisions of the law that are implicated by your particular matter, and our representation of you will be specific to your case. This website is not intended to be a survey of the law, nor should you rely on it as a substitute for actual legal advice. However, because we are of the opinion that an informed client is a better client, we provide you with certain important and foundational information so that we may better serve you.
The law is not static; rather it evolves over time. This firm is particularly conscious of the changing contours of the law. We strive to stay abreast of the latest legal developments in Massachusetts and across the nation. Matrimonial law has changed rapidly throughout the years and continues to evolve. We take pride in the attention we devote to being astutely aware of the ever-changing landscape which defines domestic relations status actions, and will certainly advise you of any significant changes that affect your particular matter. We are happy to entertain your questions regarding not only actual changes in the law, but also the way in which the law can be applied to the unique circumstances your matter presents.
