Divorce:
Attorney Butts can explain your legal rights if you are looking to file or have been served with divorce papers. We regularly file temporary order motions asking for temporary custody, temporary support, temporary visitation, orders to vacate the marital home and other options to assist you through the divorce process. The attorney will work with the entire family during those emotional times to make the separation smoother, lessen the impact on children, and help organize a plan that everyone in your family can agree on.

Child Rights and Support:
Attorney Butts will assist you in obtaining the necessary amount of child support and in making sure the support order is enforced.

Modifications to Agreements:
Attorney Butts can assist you in asking the court to modify any existing agreement.

Visitation:
Ensuring parents obtain or keep their parental visitation rights.

Prenuptial and Cohabitation Agreements:
When drafted properly, prenuptial agreements and cohabitation agreements can facilitate a healthy and well-organized union.

Retraining Orders:
Protecting yourself and your children is the most important thing during a contentious separation or divorce

Alimony:
Attorneys across Massachusetts follow the new guidelines of the Alimony Reform Act to negotiate settlements. This new law provides limits on the length, amount, and co-habitation rules in relation to alimony. The act groups all alimony into specific categories: General Alimony, Rehabilitative Alimony, Reimbursement Alimony, and Transitional Alimony. Allow Attorney Butts to review your options and guide you.
