Divorce is difficult and often adversarial. In addition to the traditional divorce attorney services in Springfield, MA, I offer my clients the choice of mediation or collaborative law. These last two options often serve to remove animosity and bitterness from the process and preserve your future relationships with all of your family members. The process involves a series of meetings (number needed is different for everyone). The end goal is to prepare a written agreement acceptable to both parties and to the court, without multiple court hearings and the resulting expense.
If you choose the traditional, adversarial divorce process, we will follow the time schedule of the court, which involves hearings, court appearances, and if no resolution is achieved, the end result will be a trial in the Probate Court.
If you are getting married for the second time, you need a pre-nuptial agreement! This document will prevent future headaches and heart aches.
