We Seek Solutions to Problems Arising in Divorce
In Massachusetts, the decision to file for divorce is the first of many decisions that must be made. Many issues are involved in a divorce proceeding. Couples may deal with choices regarding division of the marital property, child custody and visitation, child support and alimony. At the Law Offices of Moir & Ross, we guide you through those decisions, working to protect your interests each step of the way.
Child custody and visitation: Child custody arrangements are often the primary concern of parents going through a divorce. At the Law Offices of Moir & Ross, we fight hard for parents, making sure that the child custody and visitation arrangement suits them and their children.
Child support: We can help clients anticipate how much child support may be ordered under the Massachusetts child support guidelines. Our experienced divorce attorneys can also answer any questions you may have about the relationship between child custody and child support.
Alimony: Spousal support (often referred to as alimony) is sometimes ordered in a divorce when circumstances warrant that one spouse contribute to the support of the other spouse. Factors considered to determine the need for spousal support include the amount of each spouse’s income, the needs of each person and the opportunity for future earning potential.
Division of marital property: Massachusetts law divides marital property and debts “equitably.” Equitable division doesn’t necessarily mean equally. At the Law Offices of Moir & Ross, we can help you anticipate how courts may view your unique situation. In addition, we work to ensure that property division is truly equitable – and includes hidden assets that the other party may not disclose.
Dissolution of Civil Unions: Same-sex couples seeking to dissolve a civil union can also seek our help. These couples face the same family legal problems as married couples seeking divorce. Therefore, we are there to provide skilled guidance throughout dissolution proceedings. At the Law Offices of Moir & Ross, we offer legal representation that is custom tailored to your unique needs.
