Before we continue, we need to talk about what this book is and what this book isn’t
This book is intended to be a primer on divorce in Massachusetts to give you a general understanding of what you can expect. In no way should you construe the contents of this book as legal advice that you can use to build a case strategy or on what you should or shouldn’t do moving forward. Because every person and every family is so different, there is nothing about family law that is “one size fits all.”
We are going to take you through some of the procedural rules and general expectations that most people going through divorce face, but please remember that your case may take a slightly different path. That means some of the information in this ebook may or may not apply to your specific
situation or case.
Our goal is to inform you of how the divorce process works, the different options that are available to you, and provide you with our insight on how to manage and reduce the stress that you might face up ahead.
Chances are, if you’re reading this, it is your first time dealing with a divorce
So, lets shed some light on this and, hopefully, help you feel a little better and less overwhelmedby the time you’re done!
