Helping You Negotiate And File Your No-Fault Divorce
In Massachusetts, a no-fault divorce, known as a 1A divorce, takes much less time than a contested divorce. This is because there is no mandatory waiting period before your hearing, as there is in a contested divorce.
Our divorce attorney can help you resolve every aspect of your no-fault divorce, including:
- Property division
- Child custody and child visitation rights
- Alimony and spousal support
- Child support
When you hire our firm, we will work with you to determine your needs and interests in the divorce. With our technical resources and network of financial experts, we will investigate and evaluate your assets and finances, including retirement funds and pensions. We will then negotiate and draft a comprehensive divorce agreement to help you move forward into the future.
A Contested Divorce Can Become A No-Fault Divorce
If your divorce started out as a contested divorce, it is still possible to save time and litigation costs by converting your divorce to a no-fault divorce. A contested divorce, known as a 1B divorce in Massachusetts, has a minimum six-month waiting period before your hearing. By reaching an agreement outside of court, you can speed up this divorce process.
