Divorce

When asked about the most stressful and difficult time in their lives, people often say, "My divorce."

Few events cause so much upheaval and uncertainty, or carry so much risk. Your money, your children and your future all depend on the outcome.

At Patrick K. Burke, Attorney at Law, in Leominster, Massachusetts, we understand what you are going through. More importantly, we know how to help you get what you need.

Divorce And Child Custody Lawyer Serving Fitchburg And All Of Worcester And Middlesex Counties

We help our clients solve divorce-related problems involving:

  • Uncontested and contested divorces. When divorcing spouses are willing to settle their asset- and child-related issues out of court, we help our clients to broker settlement agreements. However, when spouses cannot agree on important issues, we provide aggressive representation in court.
  • Property division/debt division. During a marriage, spouses naturally accumulate money, property and debts. As part of our divorce services, we help clients to identify the assets and debts from the marriage and separate them from ones acquired outside the marriage.
  • Alimony. In Massachusetts, spousal support is determined by the length of a marriage and each spouse's comparative ages, earnings, educational levels and work histories. If alimony is an issue in your divorce, we can help you to set the right amount for your situation.
  • Child custody and support. We help divorcing couples and unmarried parents to identify their goals for child custody and child support and then pursue those arrangements in negotiations or in court.
  • Modifications and contempt. When an ex-spouse's financial or personal circumstances change significantly, it is possible to modify the terms of the divorce decree. When an ex-spouse fails to meet obligations defined in the decree, he or she can be held in contempt of court and face serious penalties. We can represent your best interests in a modification petition or in a contempt of court action.

Retain our law firm, and we will alleviate you stress by counseling you and being available to you while protecting your rights.
