Divorce for Men in Massachusetts
Men are in a much better position today to enforce their rights as husbands and fathers. The days of judges rubber-stamping orders on behalf of wives and mothers are ending. The lawyers at Miller Law Group, P.C. work closely with our clients to help make sure that judges and opposing counsel understand this as well.
Fighting for the Rights of Men Since Day One
We vigorously fight for the rights of men being victimized by women whose goal is to take the guy for everything he has and deprive him of the love, companionship and devotion to which he is entitled from his children. We know what is necessary for men to reach favorable outcomes in even the most contentious matters. Our firm is dedicated to making sure men understand their rights and fighting to uphold them in the family courts.
How Men Win Custody Battles
Our divorce and family law firm is your strategic partner and road map through the complex maze of the family courts, which some have referred to as being biased towards moms. We employ our best practices—close to 100 tactics and divorce strategies—that have helped other fathers successfully obtain custody of their children!
These proven tactics and strategies include the following:
- Hire a psychologist respected by your judge. Your goal is to have an expert help make a convincing case as to why you should be awarded full custody or more time with your children.
Take the deposition of your children’s mother immediately. We’ll ask questions and gain valuable insight into the case —
plus we’ll severely restrict her ability to raise new allegations
later. There are also times when we’ll want to intimidate your spouse
by making clear to her the ordeal that she faces ahead. Some questions
we may ask include:
- What are your parenting strengths and weaknesses?
- What is your opinion of your children’s father and his parenting skills?
- What facts will you rely on to convince the court you are the better parent?
- Do you believe he is unfit or is improper in how he parents the children?
- Name everybody knowing the facts you contend support your claim.
- Provide the names of all the babysitters you employ.
- Have you ever insulted your children’s father in front of them? (Details, please)
- Truly bond with your children. Custody orders don’t just happen because you want it. Make your children a priority, and start acting in a way that supports that.
Unfair Support Payments
For years, courts have been using their power to impute income to supporting spouses and/or parents based on their ability to earn income rather than their actual income. When we get involved in a case, if our client’s spouse isn’t working, even though he or she has the ability to, we stress to the courts the need for them to get educated, get into the workforce, and financially support themselves to their maximum ability. Whether your spouse needs to update her or his resume or you need the help of a vocational expert to testify as to her or his ability to work, the sooner you begin a strategic approach to protect yourself, the sooner your divorce goals will be accomplished. You can trust our family law firm to help.

Don’t Be Overly Generous to Satisfy a Guilty Conscience
When husbands feel guilty about leaving the relationship, they may want to give their wives more than they are entitled to receive under the law. Husbands typically regret these decisions after temporary orders or a final judgment is entered.
Beware of False Allegations of Abuse
A common trick to try to win custody is to file a false allegation of domestic violence or abuse. Because temporary orders relating to custody are often issued in response to these allegations, you must respond vigorously by retaining aggressive legal counsel. This can help prove your innocence in the matter.
