Trusted Representation In Massachusetts Divorce And Family Law

Family law disputes are among the most difficult legal issues people face. Clients are being asked to make major decisions at the same time that they are grieving the end of a marriage or worrying about the well-being of their children. If you are facing a family law issue, you’ll need the knowledgeable advice and steady guidance that only an experienced family law attorney can provide.

In Fall River and surrounding areas, look no further than the Law Office of Nancy C. Stanton, PC. I have been helping clients navigate these types of issues for more than 30 years. I know I can help you, too.

Advice, Guidance And Representation In A Range Of Family Law Matters

I can help you through nearly any family law issue you may be facing, including those related to:

  • Divorce (contested or uncontested)
  • Mediation
  • The division of property, assets and debts
  • Alimony (sometimes called spousal support)
  • Child custody and parenting time
  • Child support
  • Modifications to court orders regarding child custody and support
  • Contempt of court proceedings
  • Restraining orders and other issues related to domestic violence

Whether your family law case requires comprehensive representation or help with just a few issues, I am ready to give you and your case the attention you deserve.

Let Me Help You Protect Your Financial Future

The divorce process focuses heavily on the division of property, assets and debts, and rightly so. The decisions made (by you or the court) during this process can have a profound effect on your financial health and stability for years to come. It is critical to ensure that you and your children have the resources needed to live securely and comfortably.

One of my biggest strengths in family law is helping clients through the “business of divorce.” I work carefully with you during property division to prioritize the assets most important to you, and I can connect you with a network of finance professionals to help you adapt to your changing financial circumstances. I want you to visualize your best life after divorce, and I’ll do my best to help you realize that vision.

Offering Peaceful Alternatives To Litigation

In recent years, mediation has become a popular alternative to traditional litigation in family law disputes. In cases where it is an appropriate approach, many clients find that mediation is faster, less expensive and less stressful than litigation, and gives both parties more control over the outcome of the case. For divorcing couples who will share custody, mediation can lay the groundwork for a successful and peaceful co-parenting arrangement.

I am a certified mediator and certified conciliator, and I established the first conciliation program in this area of Massachusetts before alternative dispute resolution methods were being widely used. Although mediation isn’t possible in every case, I would be happy to discuss whether it might be right for you.
