Skilled Legal Representation When Filing For Divorce

When Should You Contact An Attorney?

Making the decision to end a marriage can be a personal struggle or one that you consult close family members and friends about for their advice and support. If you are at the point of considering either of these steps, it is time to talk to a lawyer. The Law Office of Kim-Marie Phelan, LLC, in Revere is where you can turn for experienced and proactive divorce representation.

It is important that you understand your rights and options and begin protecting your interests right away. Decisions that are made even prior to officially filing for divorce in Essex County and Middlesex County can impact your situation personally and financially.

Let Us Help You Protect Your Marital Interests

Under Massachusetts law, there is a one-year residency requirement to file for divorce. Couples who do not meet this requirement or who may not want to change their legal status from married to single can protect their parental and property rights with a separation agreement, judgment for support or separate support.

At our law firm, we can help you address any issue at any stage in the process, including:

  • Preventing the waste or misuse of assets
  • Uncovering hidden or potentially undervalued assets
  • Protecting your marital interest in the division of assets, including complex property such as pension and retirement accounts
  • Accurately assessing the income of self-employed individuals and business owners
  • Division of debts, including addressing future mortgage liability
  • Ownership of real property
  • Child custody, visitation and support matters
  • Balancing property and alimony considerations for lasting protection
