Pre-Marital Issues for MA, NH and ME Residents

We know that some family issues require assistance from an attorney before couples are married. That’s why we offer a whole range of services including pre-nuptial agreements, cohabitation agreements and paternity suits. We know sometimes the best thing to do is be fully prepared legally before you enter into a long-term relationship or marriage and we’re here to help.

If you were never married, but have kids and are breaking up, it is important that you seek counsel to help establish an agreed upon parenting plan. We can either work with both parties to keep costs down, or we can establish an aggressive offense to maximize your position. The decision is up to you, but we are here to help.

Marital Breakups and Surrounding Issues

Many marriages end in divorce or separation which can mean a whole range of new legal challenges that most of us ever have to worry about. These issues are complicated because they involve our children, families and money. Some of the issues Associated Attorneys of New England can help resolve include drafting of divorce agreements, handling annulments, dealing with custody disputes and potential relocation of children. Other issues that must be dealt with include property division, visitation of grandparents and name changes.

Child Support and Spousal Support Issues

Generally speaking, divorce decrees contain specific language which orders one party to pay support. These payments may be due from the father or mother, depending on a number of factors. Because of a variety of reasons, these payments may not be made at all or not in a timely fashion. That’s when you need a skilled attorney to help fight back. Not only will we fight for fair child and spousal support payments as part of a divorce settlement, but when necessary, we’ll take the steps necessary to enforce those orders.

Divorce is never easy and there are a range of issues which must be addressed. Victims of domestic abuse who need assistance filing civil or criminal complaints for restraining orders or those who’ve been wrongfully accused of abuse who need to fight a restraining order can count on the skilled Manchester NH family law attorneys at Associated Attorneys of New England.
