Divorce in Massachusetts

Divorce in Massachusetts will help you get started on your divorce plans or finish off your decision making now.

Massachusetts Divorce Laws should always be consulted before making any decisions about your divorce. You can obtain accurate and free information by visiting your law library and asking a clerk for the forms to copy (well, you have to pay for copies!), going to your local library in the resource section for this info, and consulting the American Bar Association books about how to handle divorce.

Do not fall victim to the claims about who should get what! Get the real deal. Read about lots of topics that concern you:

The rest of this page is about how to get your questions answered by using either a qualified attorney, who would know Massachusetts Divorce Law, or the divorce forums, and information about online divorce paperwork (which I highly recommend because now it is so easy and inexpensive). You can plan your Massachusetts Divorce well by using these resources, and find out if you truly need Massachusetts divorce lawyers or not.

Using Massachusetts Divorce Lawyers

First, it goes without saying that anyone getting divorced should get some legal counsel about important concerns. That means looking up local and qualified Massachusetts divorce lawyers, using the Yellow Pages or using word of mouth from family and friends. There are also great internet options available, which I will list here.

Avvo.com is a network of attorneys which can answer your questions online. You submit a question (how will my finances be separated during my divorce?) with your particulars, and qualified attorneys will answer you back, posting on Avvo, but you can also be notified through email each time a response comes in. Very convenient and helpful!

Divorce in Massachusetts and Divorce Forms Online

There are only a few reputable companies that stand out to process your Divorce in Massachusetts paperwork. You can still process your own paperwork and then have divorce lawyers represent you later. But if you read up on this practice, you may find that many people lose more money than gain, by using attorneys. You can do your paperwork pro se for an uncontested divorce at any time.

I have contacted so many of the lesser known companies, only to find that they don't email or call back answering my questions. So, I think it's best to stick with the big ones that can give you a money back guarantee or some kind of guarantee. The companies I recommend also have A or B Better Business Bureau ratings. There are only five companies on my "OK" list, but you will find a good one for your needs. Read the full online divorce reviews, and find a company that knows MA Divorce Laws (these companies have to!)

And, hopefully, you have already read about the differences between a contested and an uncontested divorce, and are ready to hear more about which companies could work well for you.

LEGALZOOM has a great reputation for assisting folks that are divorcing. They can do your documents for you if you live in Massachusetts, and you will have discounts on attorney fees if you do decide to use them.
  • DO-IT-YOURSELF companies that offer good rates, convenience, and extras:

  • RocketLawyer is my first pick, because their rates are so awesome for any average person. You pay a membership fee to access any legal forms for personal use, and login to create documents. You can pay month to month instead, but many couples do find that it takes time to fully realize the financial changes they will face, so I truly believe the yearly membership is more beneficial for MOST people. You can save more by using the Real-Divorce links: FREE trial membership and FREE 1st document with RocketLawyer.com

  • US Legal Forms has an easily accessible download for individual legal documents, so you pay per item.

  • 3StepDivorce.com has a great reputation on the internet for having a lot of support and extras included in the DIY package. For instance, I am a big fan of mediation, rather than litigation, and 3StepDivorce.com offers some mediation in their package.
