Massachusetts Custody Matters
Our family firm is your strategic partner and road map through the complex maze of the family courts. We employ our best practices that have helped other fathers successfully obtain custody of their children.
These proven tactics and strategies include the following:
- Hire a respected psychologist. Have an expert help make a convincing case as to why you should be awarded custody.
Take a deposition of your spouse. We’ll ask questions and gain valuable insight into the case—plus
we’ll severely restrict the ability to raise new allegations later.
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?
- 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.
- Truly bond with your children. Custody orders are built on your children's relationship with you. Make your children a priority.
Unfair Support Payments
For years, family law courts have been calculating income between 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 ask the court to compel them to 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. Read our page on justifying a decrease in alimony.
Courtroom Conduct for Fathers
Prepare Yourself by Visiting Your Court
In family law, the courthouses and rules are different, but the problems presented to the different judges are often the same. When you take a field trip to court, pay particular attention to the interaction between attorneys, litigants, courtroom staff, and judges. Sit quietly in the back, observe what works, and see what irritates the judge. Learn what to expect in court and what you need to do to prepare for game day—your day in court.
How to Convince a Judge to See Things Your Way
Ultimately, it's a judge's job to follow the law, but there are situations in which they will need to see something from the point of view of a person they are working with. We suggest that you ask yourself, "If I was the judge, what would I want to know?"
You need to keep focused and avoid making the following mistakes:
- Avoid the common blunders of leaving offensive text or voicemail messages, spreading gossip, and using the children for spying.
- Be thorough in preparing your financial statement. Be 100% honest and transparent.
- Demonstrate your ability to be patient.
- Always say “our” children and not “my” children.
