Child Custody and Support

Massachusetts Child Custody and Support Lawyers
Child custody and support matters are often highly contentious. Parents use their children to try to exact revenge or exert control on the other parent. Our attorneys know how difficult matters involving children are during a divorce. We strive to help clients stay focused on the goal of providing for children and creating the best environment possible for their growth.

Our law firm is able to provide the support and attention parents need as they work toward resolving support and custody issues. In these states and all states in which we practice, child support guidelines differ. Child custody practices vary. We have the knowledge and experience to help wherever you live. We help you navigate through the maze of issues involved to get to the desired result while keeping the best interests of the children before us at all times.
