Going through a divorce or other family law matter can be one of the most difficult experiences you will ever face. For many, it is an emotional rollercoaster plagued with fears, doubts, and anxiety.

Family Law Issues in Worcester County

When you face a family law related issue such as custody or divorce, your case will be heard within the Worcester County Probate and Family Court. Thorough preparation and solid legal arguments can make a dramatic difference in achieving a positive outcome no matter which direction you take in attempting to resolve your case. Whether you are ending your marriage, disputing the custody of your kids, or trying to adjust support payments, our diligent team can help.

In family law, every case is different because every person and every family is different. Some people will need to seek court intervention. Some will be able to work everything out amicably without litigation. Others may need a combination of both.

Our experienced attorneys can be used in many ways such as:

  • To educate you on the laws, caselaw, and procedures related to your case
  • To advise you on how courts generally view the issue(s) you are facing
  • To guide you through a mediation you may attend on your own
  • To draft documents for you to file
  • To teach you how to go into court to argue for yourself
  • To attend mediation, conciliation, or arbitration with you
  • To provide emotional support when the process feels overwhelming
  • To actually litigate on your behalf in family court
  • Any combination of the above

While our firm handles a wide variety of family law matters, divorce is the most common one. These cases often entail much more than just ending a marriage. If you and your partner share children and cannot agree on a parenting plan or if you cannot agree on other matters pertaining to the ending of your marriage, it will be left up to a judge to decide these issues. This can be one of the most difficult prospects to face as a stranger is essentially making decisions about your children, financial matters, and more. We know how destabilizing this uncertainty can be. Our compassionate legal team is here, however, to aggressively advocate to ensure that your family’s needs are addressed and met.

In any area of family law, a singular “right” way to handle the issues does not exist. Strategies must be tailored to you and your individual circumstances. After you retain us, we can meet to determine the best strategy for moving your case forward efficiently according to what is important to you and your situation.

Want to discuss the specifics of your case with an attorney? Phone O’Connor Family Law at (774) 214-2137 to arrange for case evaluation today.

Life Doesn't Have
to Be Unpredictable
