Getting a Divorce in Massachusetts

If your spouse does not want a divorce, he or she cannot stop you from obtaining one. Massachusetts provides both fault and no-fault divorce options for those seeking to end their marriage. If you file for a no-fault divorce, also known as a 1B divorce, you will not need to explain the reasoning behind your decision. It is considered an “irretrievable breakdown of marriage.” If you and your spouse agree on every key divorce issue, such as child custody and property division, you could file for a 1A divorce, also known as an uncontested no-fault divorce.

Massachusetts also allows you to file for a divorce based on fault:

  • Impotency
  • Substance abuse
  • Adultery
  • Desertion
  • Cruel or abusive treatment
  • Refusal to support the other spouse
  • A prison sentence greater than 5 years

Primary Issues in a Divorce

What ultimately makes the divorce process so challenging are the primary issues spouses must address to successfully dissolve their marriage.

At The Halk Firm, our team is experienced in handling even the most complex family law issues, including:

  • Property division
  • Debt division
  • Alimony (Spousal maintenance)
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Child support

Our divorce attorneys are knowledgeable in handling high net worth divorce cases that involve businesses, multiple properties, or other substantial investments. We know that no two divorces are alike and are prepared to take on the unique challenges each client’s case presents.

Moreover, if your marriage involves domestic violence, our divorce team will help protect you and your children by pursuing a restraining order to ensure you are able to safely dissolve your marriage. You should not have to endure this painful experience without legal support.
