Fall River Child Custody Attorneys
read moreOne of the biggest changes we've seen in Massachusetts family law over the years has been the shift away from sole custody and visitation to shared custody and parenting time. Parents now share parenting responsibilities. Of course, this does not mean that no parent is ever awarded sole custody. There are situations in which shared custody would be demonstrably bad for the child or unworkable for the parents (for example, if the parents live in different states). What it does mean is that in a majority of cases, Massachusetts parents involved in a child custody case will need to look at coparenting.

read moreA guardian is a person with the power to make decisions on behalf of a child (or an incompetent person). There are two ways a guardian can be appointed. When I work with clients on their estate plan. I advise them to name a guardian in their Will or with a guardianship document. If parents have not planned for a guardian and are now unable to provide care, someone can petition the probate court to ask a judge to name them as guardian. While it's typical for a family member to take on the role of guardian - a grandparent, aunt or uncle, or an older sibling - a guardian can be an unrelated person.
