Worcester Family Law Attorney
Massachusetts Family Law Group (MFLG) was established to help men and women of medium to high net worth develop strategies for getting what they want and deserve in their divorces. We focus on providing caring and zealous advocacy to men and women in all matters related to divorce. Our goal is always to protect our clients and their children, and to secure positive outcomes that will help them get their lives back.
Statewide Brain Trust
The lawyers at the Worcester office of MFLG draw upon the vast resources of our entire statewide brain trust. Instead of being dependent on just a single attorney, our clients get an entire legal team backed by our network of family law attorneys and experts — with each providing a different concentration area and razor-sharp focus.
We work with financial specialists, business appraisers, child psychologists, child custody evaluators and many other specialists. Our firm has the resources and familiarity with the system to identify and consult with exactly the right expert for your case.
Need a Home-Court Advantage? We Can Help.
Our attorneys appear in the Worcester County Probate and Family Court almost every day. This provides our clients with a significant home-court advantage. We can anticipate how a particular judge might respond to a motion or petition and plan our case accordingly. Whether the issue is alimony, the 2009 revisions in the Child Support Guidelines, modification of a parenting plan or a paternity complaint, we know how to position our clients to their best advantage during the case.
Walking You Through the Steps to Divorce
We are caring people and aggressive attorneys, ready to help you:
- File and serve the complaint.
- Fill out your financial statement.
- Make the transition easier for children.
- Work out custody and visitation issues.
- Seek or defend against post-judgment modifications.
Our legal team is not only known for its ability to litigate contested divorce and family law, but also for the experience and talents in achieving negotiated settlements. Some members of our staff focus primarily on flat-fee, uncontested matters.
The Danger of Do-it-Yourself Divorce
It may seem like the least expensive, fastest alternative to hiring an attorney: Go online and do your divorce yourself. While tempting, you should know that all Massachusetts courts are mandated to hold self-represented litigants to the same standards as attorneys. You will be required to know the law — whether or not you actually do. Once the final judgment is entered, the case is over. You may not get another chance to fix the problem. Our attorneys have seen the dangers firsthand. Time and time again, we have had to come in and fix errors that were made by well-meaning people trying to save money and get through their divorce quicker.
Experienced and Aggressive Representation
After you've gone through our website and gotten an overview of Massachusetts divorce, and what makes our firm different, perhaps the most valuable service we offer is our free, no obligation initial consultation. No matter where you live in Central Massachusetts — Charlton, Fitchburg, Gardner, Holden, Shrewsbury or Worcester — our lawyers answer your questions about divorce and explain the process to you.
After your consultation, you'll take home worksheets and walk away feeling like you've received a law degree with a specialized certification by a state-approved board in matrimonial law!
