Boston Area Divorce Lawyer
A Listening Law Firm with Your Interests in Mind
Divorce is always a stressful life change, even if you are prepared for it, even if you are the partner initiating the divorce. It is one of the most significant life changes a person will encounter and it will have long-lasting impact, especially on children.
Whether that impact is negative or neutral will depend upon the actions taken by the two adults in the relationship. At the Law Office of Kevin P. O’Malley, our Medford divorce lawyers understand the real-world issues you’re facing. We know from personal experience what it’s like to get divorced, and we know how it feels to a child when his or her parents choose divorce.
We know that life goes on and you will move past this situation.
We’re here to help you do just that.
You can count on us to be there for you every step of the way.
As your divorce attorneys, it is our responsibility to help you achieve a fair and equitable property division of marital assets, an alimony agreement that allows both partners to remain self-sufficient, and child support and child custody agreements that truly meet the needs of children.
When we meet with you, we will listen closely to understand your goals in the divorce process. We will also share with you what we’ve learned in our years of experience about what helps couples and new families move forward. If we see pitfalls ahead, we will do our best to help you avoid them.
A former client of ours, a lovely lady with several children, had been married to a man from a wealthy family. Due to the generosity of family, she and her husband had never wanted but neither had significant income. When her husband left, she received advice from other attorneys that her expectations should be low because his earned income was low.
We didn’t agree.
Our client had contributed substantially to the marriage and the well-being of her husband. Her children deserved financial support commensurate with their father’s standing, and their higher education needs should be guaranteed. We took the case to trial and the day before trial started the father agreed to a substantial settlement, far exceeding our client’s initial expectations but quite reasonable given his future inheritance.
Our Boston marriage dissolution attorneys understood our client’s concerns and the emotional issues she was facing; but we also understood that she had been poorly advised and needed to be firm in protecting her interests and those of her children.
At the Law Office of Kevin P. O’Malley we will fight to protect your interests in the courtroom or in negotiations. Contact our office to talk to a Medford divorce lawyer with experience in the Massachusetts family law court system. You can trust us to protect your rights and your children’s interests.
