One Size Does Not Fit All | Lawrence Complex Divorce Attorney
In many cases, one spouse is ready for a divorce before the other one has adjusted to the idea of a marital separation or dissolution. An experienced family law attorney, like Linda Nutting Cummings, can provide valuable advocacy, advice and facilitation.
Despite the heartbreak of a marital break-up, many spouses in the process of divorce find that they are able to reach agreements on some issues (child custody, for example). At the same time, there may be strong disagreement in other areas (such as equitable property division or spousal support), blocking the way to a full comprehensive settlement. Each separating couple's divorce — acrimonious or agreeable — is as unique as each couple's marriage. There is no "one size fits all" approach to resolving legal matters in a divorce. Listening carefully, returning phone calls, and making the effort to understand each client's needs and desires are all integral parts of the law practice of Massachusetts divorce lawyer Linda Nutting Cummings.
When a collaborative method is the desired approach, Massachusetts divorce lawyer Linda Nutting Cummings has a history of success facilitating settlement conferences that enable parties to reach a full and fair agreement without the need for litigation.
