Child Custody / Visitation

Massachusetts child custody is based on the best interests of the child. If the parents cannot agree to what is in the best interests of the child, then it is necessary to convince the court why a party’s position is in the best interests of the child.

  1. Legal Custody
  2. Physical Custody
  3. Removal from Massachusetts
  4. Parenting Plans
  5. Sole Custody
  6. Visitation Rights
