Domestic Relations

    I practice domestic relations and divorce law. I will fight for the best outcome for you and your family in the courtroom. It's important that you select a compassionate attorney who will sympathize with your domestic relations dispute, guide you through the trial process, and fight for your family’s future. A contested divorce and trial is likely to result if the domestic dispute includes any of the following:

  • Child custody, child support, or visitation rights

  • Asset or property distribution

  • Division of debts

  • Alimony

  • Infidelity or other reasons for a fault divorce

    

Having a good divorce attorney can mean not having to pay child support or alimony, keeping custody of your children, and securing a better future after your marriage.  

Domestic Relations/Family Attorney in Boston

    Prepare for your domestic relations case or divorce as soon as possible to ensure the best outcome for yourself and your family. Schedule a consultation at Matthew W. Peterson Attorney-at-Law today by calling 617-356-8217, or schedule an appointment at his office at 45 Bromfield Street, Suite 500, Boston, MA 02108.

 

A domestic relations attorney can fight to get you custody or visitation of your children even if the divorce has already been finalized or if you were never married.

Prepare for Your Domestic Relations Case Today

    A domestic dispute may be a long and difficult process. If you don’t consult an attorney, you risk disadvantaging yourself and your family. The average domestic dispute case can take six months to a year.  

  I have seen people agree to child support payments that are way too high with Child Support Guidelines that are incorrectly filled out all because they didn't have an attorney.  

 

    Remember, it can be much more expensive not to hire a good attorney than to hire one.

    Complicated cases may extend up to two years or longer. If you choose to forgo an experienced attorney, you risk losing the following:

  • Custody of your Children

  • Retirement Plan

  • Alimony

  • Child Support Payments

  • Visitation  

   

    I have successfully fought for my clients' fair share of their former spouse's retirement and assets, and I have also fought to protect my clients' property in divorces.  I have also filed contempt motions when my clients' spouses fail to abide by family orders of the court, whether that's failing to pay child support, failing to pay alimony, or failing to abide by visitation or custody requirements.

   It's important that you select a compassionate attorney who will sympathize with your domestic relations dispute, guide you through the trial process, and fight for your family.  Call me today at 617-356-8217. 

Handling a Variety of Domestic Relations Disputes

    I have experience in a range of domestic relations disputes. Whether it's child custody, alimony, visitation, or a simple no-contest divorce, I'll get to work immediately. I also represent domestic violence survivors who need to obtain civil protective orders.     Common domestic relations disputes that I have successfully handled include:

  • Uncontested Divorce

  • Contested Divorce

  • Divorce Modifications, including modifying child support, visitation, and other aspects of the divorce

  • Child Custody

     I will ensure your legal rights are protected.  If you're not sure you need an attorney, meet with me and determine what legal options are available to you.

 

Schedule a  consultation at Matthew W. Peterson Attorney-at-Law today by calling (617) 356-8217, or schedule an appointment at his office at 45 Bromfield Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02108.

 

A domestic relations lawyer can fight to lower your child support payments or alimony payments even after the divorce is over, but it's much better to get the right attorney during the divorce to ensure that your rights are protected.
