Divorce and Child Custody

BaumDockterOur Approach

At Baum & Dockter, we take a different approach to divorce, guiding you on a course that avoids the animosity-driven battle that is typical with divorce.

We have concentrated on Divorce and Family Law for over 45 years. Consequently, we understand that divorce and family legal matters are rarely simple and each requires its own process. Our practical, outcome-oriented approach focuses on helping you determine your goals and developing a strategic plan that will meet those goals.

Our Experience – Your Advantage

Through our extensive experience practicing before the Family Court Judges in Massachusetts, we have learned each judge’s manner and the process they bring to deciding cases. That enables us to develop a personalized plan to strategically negotiate and aggressively advocate for you and protect your interests.

We have also become well-connected with other Massachusetts divorce lawyers. We build strong, positive relationships with the other professionals involved on a divorce case, working to move the case to resolution as efficiently as possible.

Given our experience, you can be assured that we are up-to-date regarding divorce law, legal cases, and standards. We are also knowledgeable in the many areas of the law that intertwine with divorce law, such as real estate, taxes, estate planning, and trust matters.

Our Support to You Throughout the Process

In addition to serving as your legal advocate, we act as an advisor. We understand that divorce and family-related legal matters can be emotionally difficult. Therefore, we are committed to supporting you throughout the process and ensuring that we are there when you need us most. We make it our utmost priority to be responsive to your concerns and return your phone calls and emails promptly.

We represent and guide individuals through all the aspects in the process of divorce: child, custody, alimony/spousal support, child support, paternity, property division, restraining orders, domestic violence, and other related matters.
