Massachusetts Divorce Laws

Here you will find an overview of Massachusetts divorce laws. From the time the Plaintiff (or Petitioner, or Co-Petitioner) files the Complaint for Divorce (or Petition for Divorce), until the time the Judgment of Divorce is signed by the Judge of the Probate Court for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Massachusetts has certain procedures that need to be followed. These procedures are all in accordance with Massachusetts laws, encompassing maintenance, child custody and visitation, child support, and equitable distribution.

Massachusetts divorce laws are put in place for both the Plaintiff (or Petitioner, or Co-Petitioner) and the Defendant (or Respondent, or Co-Petitioner) to receive a fair divorce. Sometimes, hiring a divorce lawyer or mediator in your area is the best way to ensure that this happens. Or, if you and your spouse are able to cooperate and agree on everything, you can do your own Massachusetts divorce online.
