We Can Guide You Through Every Aspect Of Your Divorce

Attorney Richard Mucci guides families in Middlesex County and Woburn County through every step of the divorce process. Ending a marriage is met with many challenges, including making decisions about the following:

  • Alimony

Additionally, Mr. Mucci has not only the negotiating skills to resolve cases prior to trial, but also the litigation experience to represent clients in contested matters.

How Massachusetts Courts Determine Property Division And Child Custody

In determining child support, alimony and division of assets, courts are directed by guidelines. Richard Mucci will work with you and explain to you your rights and obligations pursuant to these guidelines.

Courts will consider a multitude of factors in dividing marital assets, including:

  • Length of the marriage
  • Conduct of the parties during the marriage
  • Each spouse's occupation
  • Income and employability of each party
  • Expectancy of the parties to inherit
  • Financial needs of each of the parties
  • Any opportunities for future acquisition of capital assets and income
  • Contribution of each of the parties as a homemaker to the family unit
  • Present and future needs of any minor children

Courts will consider the best interests of the children in determining child custody and visitation. Customarily, it is in a child's best interest to have both parents actively involved in his or her life.

However, circumstances may arise when this is not in the best interest for the child. No client's divorce is the same so attorney Richard Mucci will personalize a strategy in consultation with you to pursue a fair and reasonable agreement or judgment.

What If My Circumstances Have Changed Since My Divorce?

If you are already divorced, often it is necessary to file for modification or contempt actions when conditions change or one violates a court order. These conditions include changes to income levels, layoffs, retirement, medical conditions and issues arising from visitations. Richard Mucci can offer clients advice on their rights to seek a modification or enforce a court order.

He has the experience, knowledge and sensitivity to advise and represent you and your legal interests effectively while easing your emotional burden.
