Separation

While Massachusetts law does not contain a specific statute governing legal separation; we can guide you in protecting your rights and interests through creative legal solutions.

Many times, our first conversation with a client is when he or she calls to discuss obtaining a legal separation. Unfortunately, Massachusetts law does not provide a specific statute to provide for legal separation. In order to get the protections you are looking for, it may be necessary to file for divorce or some other action with the Court. In Massachusetts, when you hear someone say that they are legally separated it generally may mean that they have filed for a divorce and are living separately based upon the provisions of a Temporary Order of the Court.

To discuss your needs with an experienced divorce, separation and family law attorney, please contact us today at 978-777-1010.

A No-Pressure, Commonsense Approach to Separation

It’s your marriage, your house, your money and your kids. We don’t view it as our job to tell you what decision is best for you. In short, it’s your life and we won’t try to convince you to do anything you don’t want to do.

What we can do is help you clarify your rights and responsibilities in a temporary order or separation agreement, such as:

  • Who will retain the use of the family home?
  • Who will be primarily responsible for raising the kids?
  • What is a fair amount of support while you are living apart?
  • Who will pay the mortgage? Health insurance? Car insurance? College expenses? Piano lessons? Etc.?

A temporary order protects you during your separation. It can also lay the foundation for a fair and relatively simple divorce, should you decide to take the next step.

Legal Separation and Separate Support

There is a legal procedure called Separate Support. Unfortunately, in order to obtain this form of separation, you must file with an allegation of fault, such as adultery, physical violence, drug and alcohol abuse or felony criminal conviction. In other words, you must “blame” your spouse. If your goal is a possible reconciliation, then the filing of a fault based Separate Support action may hinder or destroy your chances of reconciliation.

If you are seeking a legal separation and need to discuss your options under Massachusetts law with an experienced attorney, please contact the offices of Rudy Jaworski today at 978-777-1010.

Property Division

Arguments over property division can quickly move a relatively amicable divorce into a serious legal contest. In many cases, the cost of fighting for more money or a greater share of the marital estate at trial outweighs any gains made.

Rudolf A. Jaworski Helps Resolve Disputes Over the Division of Marital Assets

The team at RA JAWORSKI PC will put our years of experience and trial litigation skill at your disposal in resolving any dispute over the equitable division of marital assets in a Massachusetts divorce.

Our goal is to facilitate a reasonable and practical property settlement that saves the time and expense of a trial. If, however, litigation is the best solution to get you the fair property division order you need and deserve, we have the extensive experience to fight for what is right in court.

If you have filed for divorce and are seeking the help of an experienced attorney in resolving a dispute over property division, please contact Attorney Rudolf Jaworski in Danvers, Massachusetts, today to schedule an initial consultation. Call 978-777-1010 now.

Issues in Property Division: Investments and Retirement Accounts

In many cases, at least a portion of a pension, 401(k), or other investment or retirement account is subject to division in divorce. Determining exactly what part of the account is marital property and what constitutes separate assets not subject to division is often a complex task.

Our experience allows us to conduct a rapid yet thorough valuation of these investments in order to make a reliable and convincing determination. We can assist you in obtaining a Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO), which enables you to receive your fair share of these assets or transfer a fair share to your spouse without taxes or penalties.

Rudy Jaworski can also advise you as to the tax consequences of any proposed property settlement that entails the division of investment and retirement accounts.

Our experience and straightforward approach enables us to guide you in obtaining a fair and equitable division of marital property and assets. We can effectively handle cases involving substantial real estate investments and the discovery of hidden assets.

Representing Massachusetts Divorce Clients in the Division of Real Estate Holdings

With today’s economic uncertainty, people facing divorce are very concerned about accurately valuing real estate in an effort to achieve their due during property division. Due to the instability of the real estate market, selling your home or other property investments may not be in the best interest of you or your spouse. It may be a more prudent choice to hold onto your home or other property until the market is right.

At the law firm of RA JAWORSKI PC, in Danvers, Massachusetts, we help divorce clients make informed decisions about their real estate holdings. After reviewing property appraisals, we will use our experience to give you an honest assessment of your options and help you proceed down a path that protects your best interests.

Contact us today at 978-777-1010 to discuss your circumstances with a lawyer experienced in real estate valuation and equitable property division.

You May Not Need to Sell Your Home

It is a common misconception that a judge will make you sell your family home during a divorce. Based yoon your specific situation, we can often make a strong argument against doing so.

  • You may be close to being upside down on the house
  • You may have children who would be negatively impacted by relocation
  • It may not be possible to sell one house and purchase two more in the same community

In these types of circumstances, the sensible choice may be to keep the family home. Other assets can be negotiated to compensate the spouse who will need to relocate.

Dealing With Vacation Properties

If you own an oceanfront vacation property or a ski lodge in the mountains, you may not want to lose the opportunity to continue to build family vacation memories. You may not have to. Oftentimes we can negotiate an agreement for sharing these properties.

Assisting Massachusetts Clients With Concerns About Hidden Marital Assets

Divorce is seldom an easy process. There are many issues that require examination. One of the most important factors in a divorce involves determining the accurate value of all marital assets. But, what should you do if you suspect your spouse has not provided a full disclosure of money in bank accounts, investments and property?

At the law firm of RA JAWORSKI PC, in Danvers, Massachusetts, we work with clients who have a legitimate reason to suspect their spouse of possessing hidden assets. In today’s world, finding hidden assets can be extremely difficult. Privacy laws in the banking industry often restrict access to accounts and various transactions. Through the use of forensic accountants and other search experts, we may be able to help you prove hidden assets exist.

Contact us now at 978-777-1010 to arrange a consultation to discuss the discovery of hidden assets. The divorce lawyers at our firm represent clients throughout Essex County, eastern Middlesex County, and North Shore communities, such as Andover, North Andover, Beverly, Boxford, Gloucester, Hamilton, Ipswich, Manchester by the Sea, Middleton, Newburyport, Rockport, Wenham, Winchester, and Topsfield.

Finding Hidden Assets During Divorce

Finding hidden assets is an extremely complex process, often involving a serious time and financial commitment. Clients who choose to travel down this road must have very solid reasoning behind their suspicions and must be aware that, in some cases, efforts to locate suspected hidden assets may be in vain.

If hidden assets exist, you really need to know more than a feeling that “he or she has money stashed away someplace”. To prove hidden assets are present, there has to be evidence showing a discrepancy between what is being spent and the total sum of known investments, retirement accounts and other assets. If there is a significant discrepancy, we must determine where it has come from, where it has gone and how much is missing.

Our firm may subpoena banks and other financial institutions,if appropriate,for account records. We may have an accountant review tax records to ensure all income is accounted for. If money still appears to be missing, we will do all we can to find out where it has gone and see that it becomes a part of your divorce case.

Tax Consequences of Divorce

We help our clients understand the tax implications of getting a divorce and advise them of the decisions they will have to make regarding property settlement and support.

Rudolf A Jaworski Helps Clients Understand the Tax Consequences of Divorce

If you are going through a divorce, paying taxes may be the last thing on your mind – but it is an important issue to consider. The decisions you make regarding support payments and the division of property may result in significant tax savings or significant tax penalties.

We will thoroughly analyze your situation, including tax returns, to determine the potential tax implications. We will then provide you with the information you need to make sound legal decisions. Please contact us in Danvers, Massachusetts, at 978-777-1010 to schedule a consultation.

Tax Consequences to Consider

Some general tax information typically associated with the dissolution of marriage includes:

  • Alimony is deductible for the payer, but is considered taxable income for the payee
  • A person can still claim “head of household” status as long as a dependent lives with you
  • The exemptions for dependents can be apportioned between the spouses
  • You may need to claim a dependant to b eligible for certain tax credits
  • If considering finalizing a divorce at the end of a calendar year, it may be better to wait to finalize until the beginning of the following year in order to maximize tax benefits
  • If dividing investment accounts, one may be worth more than another because of the tax ramifications upon sale and distribution
  • There are certain tax ramifications for owning a house and other property

Every divorce is different. It is therefore important to contact a lawyer who can help determine and explain the tax consequences of your situation. At RA JAWORSKI PC, we have extensive experience and in-depth legal knowledge that allows us to provide honest legal advice regarding these complex issues. Please contact us at 978-777-1010 to discuss your case with Rudy Jaworski, an experienced family law attorney.

Child Support and Educational Expenses

Child support orders are all about fairness. Individual judges have differing opinions on what is fair when it comes to ordering parents to pay for a child’s college tuition and other educational expenses. Some prefer a fifty-fifty split; others believe the responsibility should be proportional to income; and some believe there should be a reduction in child support if your child is residing at college. Having a lawyer on your side who knows the courts and the judges can be a tremendous advantage.

Time is of the essence. Massachusetts family court judges want you to deal with the question of who will pay for your child’s educational expenses in the initial divorce and child support agreement.

In fact, it may be  difficult if not impossible to come back to the issue of college or other educational expenses after the divorce and child custody orders have been finalized. Only an experienced attorney can help you understand and pursue your options if this is the case.

That is why it is so important to have the guidance of an experienced child support lawyer from the very start. Our team understands the law and the courts and can help you avoid making a potentially costly mistake.

To discuss provisions for ensuring that your child’s college tuition or other educational expenses are covered by a child support agreement or order, please contact us today at 978-777-1010. If you have already filed for divorce or are seeking to modify previous child support or education related orders and you need experienced representation in these matters, your initial consultation will be free.

Child Support and Health Insurance Benefits

Court orders regarding child support include a provision that determines which parent is responsible for maintaining health insurance for the child in question. Support orders will also define the extent of the coverage and who will be responsible for medical and dental expenses that are not covered by insurance. We can help you ensure that your child’s well-being is protected by negotiating or litigating a fair and workable child support and insurance coverage arrangement.

Parental Establishment

Mothers and putative fathers in North Shore communities in Massachusetts rely on the experienced representation of the attorneys at the law firm of RA JAWORSKI PC in establishing the paternity of children born both in and out of marriage. Our thorough understanding of the legal ramifications of paternity allows us to help you think through your options and pursue the course that best protects your rights and the long-term well being of the child in question. The establishment of paternity affects both married and unmarried couples, specifically in the area of child support.

It is our job to serve the best interests of our client in these cases.We will act quickly to resolve any doubt about paternity and will work hard to protect our clients’ rights, regardless of the nature of the findings.

Modifying Custody and Support Orders in Massachusetts

At the law firm of RA JAWORSKI PC, in Danvers, Massachusetts, we assist clients with the modification of existing court orders. Our years of experience and extensive legal knowledge allow us to effectively assert our clients’ interests and reach favorable outcomes that reflect their change in circumstances.

Rudolf A Jaworski Can Guide You Through the Process

Did you know? Even if you make an informal agreement with your spouse to lower child support payments or alter visitation schedules, you can still be held in contempt of court. If you need to modify a divorce order, it is important to contact an attorney so you can properly file it with the court.

When Should You Seek a Modification?

Requesting a modification may be necessary when the original child custody or child support order no longer serves the best interests of the child or there has been a substantial change in circumstances rendering the original order unfair or unworkable.

There are specific circumstances under which the Massachusetts courts are likely to grant a modification, including:

  • Change of residence (or modification of custody due to parental relocation)
  • Substantial change of income for either parent which makes child support modification necessary (either reducing or increasing support)
  • Serious injury or illness of a parent resulting in long-term or permanent disability
  • Unforeseen health care or academic needs of the child
  • Substantial college expenses

The team at the Massachusetts law firm of RA JAWORSKI PC can help you determine if you have a strong case for modifying custody or support. Please contact us at 978-777-1010 to schedule a initial consultation at our Danvers offices.

Please note, seeking modification as soon as possible after the loss of your job or other substantial change in circumstances can prevent enforcement actions against you.

Who Can Seek a Modification?

Either parent can file a complaint for modification after a divorce and request that the court modify its orders regarding child custody or support. Also, a ”next friend” a third party acting for the benefit of the child may seek modification after serving notice to both parents.

Under certain circumstances, a minor child may seek to express his or her preference regarding which parent has primary physical custody. However, this is almost never a controlling factor and the ultimate decision is left to the judge. Also, parents are able to seek support for college or other educational expenses if the child is living at home with one of the parents and is between the ages of 18 and 23.

What Can Be Modified?

Generally, only orders of child custody, support, and visitation, and some alimony orders can be changed by the court. Decisions regarding the division of marital property are considered final and are not subject to modification after the divorce.

Many agreements designate what can and cannot be modified, except for child-related issues which can always be modified. It is important to consult an attorney who can provide you with a reliable evaluation of your case and who has the experience to fight for what is fair in court, if necessary.

We assist people seeking modification of their divorce decree orders.Please contact us at 978-777-1010 in Danvers, Massachusetts, to schedule an initial consultation with an accomplished child custody and child support modification attorney.

Child Support Enforcement

Most Massachusetts divorce, child custody and child support agreements have built-in methods of enforcement. Your agreement may call for the mediation of any disputes and may also provide for penalties if the other party does not live up to his or her obligations.

Attorney Rudolf A Jaworski in Danvers Can Help

The team at the family law firm of RA JAWORSKI PC have the experience and skill to guide you through the process of resolving issues of back child support or custody disputes in whatever method is called for in your agreement or family court order. Please contact us today at 978-777-1010 to schedule a free initial consultation at our offices in Danvers regarding Modification or Enforcement of Court orders..

Contempt Orders and Child Support Enforcement Actions

When a parent is under a family court order to pay child support and he or she fails to do so, the courts can (and often do) hold that parent in contempt of court.

If you are forced to sue a former spouse who is in arrears for child support and he or she is found in contempt of court, your former spouse will be responsible to pay for your reasonable attorney’s fees and lost wages which you have incurred as a result of the enforcement action.

Our objective is to help get you through your Child Custody case with the results you really want and expect. The team at RA JAWORSKI PC takes the same straightforward approach to disputes regarding child custody and visitation agreements. We will take decisive action to protect your rights and the best interests of your child. We will make your Child Custody and Support case our priority. Please contact us today at 978-777-1010 to schedule a free initial consultation at our offices in Danvers regarding Modification or Enforcement of Court orders.

Relocation

Most child custody, child support and visitation agreements involve parents and children who live relatively close to one another. However, if you or your child’s other parent decide to relocate, your existing agreement will need to be modified.

At RA JAWORSKI PC, we have the skill and experience needed to guide you through the relocation process. Whether you want to move with your child or challenge the relocation of another parent, we will take the necessary action to assert your interests and protect your rights. Please contact us at 978-777-1010 in Danvers, Massachusetts, to discuss your case.

Helping Clients Work Through Relocation Issues

The basic standard for relocation is whether the move is a real advantage to the child or children. While this may seem like a relatively simple determination, the process is not necessarily automatic. There are an assortment of issues that must be carefully considered including child support, parenting time, visitation, child support payments and much more.

It is our job to make sure these issues are fully addressed and effectively dealt with before any relocation is approved. Whatever side we are on, we ask important questions, including:

  • Why is the parent moving? Is there a better job opportunity? Is the parent moving closer to relatives?
  • How will the move benefit the children? Are there good schools in the area? Will the child be closer or farther away from friends and family?
  • How will this affect parenting time and support? Can the child see the other parent during holidays and vacations? Can a parent decrease child support payments in order to offset the cost of traveling?

We understand that every relocation case is unique and will always fight to protect your interests. Whenever possible, they will attempt to negotiate a mutually acceptable resolution. If this fails, they will not hesitate to pursue the matter in court.

The Role of Guardian ad Litem

The ultimate goal in any relocation and custody matter is to protect the best interests of the child. To do this, some judges will appoint a guardian ad litem to investigate and report to the Court.

A guardian ad litem serves as an investigator for the judge regarding the child or children involved in the case. He or she will investigate the situation, talk to the parties, and make a recommendation to the court regarding the best course of action. Their recommendations are not binding, but they tend to be relied upon by the court. It is therefore very important to have an attorney who is familiar with both the process and the guardian ad litems themselves by your side. Their recommendations also serve to make sure parents do not use relocation and modification as a means of “getting even” with one another.

Please contact us to discuss your post divorce relocation case during a free initial consultation with Attorney Rudolf A. Jaworski at 978-777-.

 

Domestic Violence

We represent both those who have fallen victim to domestic violence and those who have been falsely accused of spousal abuse. We help our clients develop a plan for their protection once the crisis has ended.

Prenuptial Agreements (also known as Premarital or Ante-nuptial Agreements)

Our firm drafts comprehensive prenuptial agreements for our clients. We also represent those who already have a prenuptial agreement in place and want to ensure that its terms are honored during a divorce.

Rudolf A Jaworski Drafts and Enforces Prenuptial Agreements

A prenuptial agreement (also called an ante-nuptial agreement or premarital agreement) can help protect your assets in the event of a divorce or legal separation. It can also ensure that a spouse will receive a fair share of these assets should the marriage end. If you are considering a prenuptial agreement or if your spouse wants one, we will explain the law, answer your questions, and craft a fair agreement that protects your rights.

At RA JAWORSKI PC, we have the experience and knowledge needed to effectively represent your interests in regard to prenuptial agreements. Please contact us at 978-777-1010 to schedule an initial consultation at our Danvers offices.

Protecting Your Financial Interests

While some of our clients are first-time spouses, others are entering their second or third marriages. We also represent those who already have an agreement and want to ensure its terms are honored during a divorce. Whatever group you fit into, you understand the importance of protecting investments in a pension/retirement plan (i.e. 401(k)s, and securing assets to pass down to your children and grandchildren.

The Advantages of Having a Prenuptial Agreement

Some people believe that a prenuptial agreement is a set-up for failure. The truth is, pre-nups grant many people much-needed peace of mind. They know that their finances are in order should a divorce become inevitable. Alimony and property division are some of the most contentious issues in the dissolution of a marriage, but with a prenuptial agreement, the process can proceed smoothly.

While a prenuptial agreement can be a valuable document, it must be thorough and contain important protective measures. This includes a sunset provision. This provision essentially voids certain parts of the prenuptial agreement after a specified amount of time has passed or terminates the agreement in its entirety. It is especially beneficial in terms of paying and receiving alimony.
