What is a no-fault 1A divorce?

After a reluctant decision, you and your partner have decided to divorce. But no matter the reasons that drove you apart, you mutually agree that you would rather negotiate your divorce terms amicably between the two of you rather than face down with lawyers and judges deciding the terms by their standards. Under Massachusetts law, do you have the right to define the terms of your own divorce?

Does same-sex divorce fall under standard divorce law?

Although you may never wish to think of separating from your same-sex partner after a joyful Massachusetts marriage, there may come a time when it is best to part ways. But under state and federal law, are same-sex divorces handled differently than opposite-sex divorces, or do they fall under standard legal jurisdiction? What do you need to know when divorcing in the state of Massachusetts?

Defining repetitive stress injuries

Under the Massachusetts Workers Compensation Act, employers are obligated to provide benefits and coverage for illnesses that happened in or because of the workplace, whether those injuries are temporary or lead to permanent disability. One such type of injury is repetitive stress injuries, in which accumulated strain over time can lead to permanent physical or mental damage to the worker. Repetitive stress injuries are also sometimes called repetitive strain injuries.

What to expect after a serious dog bite attack in Massachusetts

People love to say that a dog is man's best friend. That can be true in many cases. A well-trained and properly cared for dog can be a source of companionship, protection and even medical intervention for those with disabilities, like blindness or diabetes. Unfortunately, dogs can also be incredibly dangerous, particularly to small children.

Substance abuse and child custody cases

When initiating a divorce claim, you may experience a great deal of fear, pain and loss when facing separation from a spouse with drug or alcohol abuse problems. In particular, while their substance abuse issues may have merit in pursuing grounds for divorce, they may also have an effect on custody cases involving any children you had together. You may be afraid to leave your child with your former spouse in the case of joint custody, even temporary joint custody while trial proceedings take place. Here at the law office of Antonioni and Antonioni, we understand the difficulties, stress, and fear inherent in trying to protect your child while ensuring a successful divorce case.
