"I retained Howard after the working relationship with the attorney handling my divorce became a struggle. From our first meeting through to the final divorce decree, Howard remained steadfast with his approach to my case which was ultimately settled in my favor. He offered sound advice, was promptly responsive to my needs, patient with his guidance and relied on his firm grasp on the legal aspects of my case to settle it. Divorce is difficult enough to maneuver through and Howard kept the process focused and every question was worthy of his personal response. I am forever grateful of the advice he provided and the course his advice set me on for my future."

"Howard represented me in a very difficult and emotional family law case where my spouse was trying to keep me from seeing the children through a serious of lies. We had to go to court several times and each time I could see we were making more and more progress until we finally won. In my opinion this is the best firm around, Howard is always accessible even by cell or text when I was worried and the fees were fair and the results were exactly what I dreamed of."

Legal Questions & Answers


A:
Some states have divorce waiting periods when filing for divorce to make sure that couples are absolutely certain about ending their marriages. Divorce waiting periods vary from state to state, ranging from a month to six months to even a year or more, if certain divorce issues haven’t been resolved. In the past, states have considered extending divorce waiting periods, especially for couples with children. Such divorce legislation has been based on observations that shorter divorce waiting periods lead to higher divorce rates.

A:
I specialize in Massachusetts divorce and have extensive experience with the details of the alimony reform act. Please call me directly to discuss. Thank you.




A:
I am sorry that you are going through this. Your issue really is not the possession part because a first time possession of less than an ounce, which you have, is a civil infraction. However, keep in my that the second and subsequent offenses under the current statute are more serious and could result in a criminal conviction and loss of a drivers license if not handled property. It is the distribution part you want to work on with a local attorney and have him or her “break” the charges down to simple possession especially given the facts you presented. You should be ok. Take care and I hope that things work out.




A:
There is always an understanding that marital assets and debt are joint, if you can prove to the court that it was his and that your down payment was yours before you were married you have a strong argument in your favor. You should consult a qualified MA divorce attorney for representation for the best possible outcome. You may visit our website at www.LewisLeeper.com
