Family Law

When a legal matter affects your family, it is critical to seek guidance from an experienced attorney who can protect your interests. Located in downtown Boston, the attorneys at Katzman & Katzman, P.C., use their years of experience to provide services in the area of domestic relations litigation and family law, which generally involves divorce and child support-related matters. Such cases require counsel that is sensitive to the emotional and psychological impact divorce has on individuals, families and business owners, but also who is aware of the short-and long-term financial needs of the client. However, keeping this in mind we always when necessary zealously represent our clients and take any and all actions necessary to protect the interests of clients and their families.

To best help our clients, we take a family approach, guiding our clients through the legal system in a way that helps them feel comfortable and at ease. When clients know that caring and experienced counsel will seek to protect and secure their futures, they can focus on what really matters – their families – and leave the legal issues to us.

The firm represents clients in various courts, and services include:

  • Divorce: Divorce is hard on everyone involved. We guide you through the process of negotiating a divorce agreement that protects your rights as well as those of your children.
  • Child Custody Issue: Child custody is often the most contentious issue in a divorce. We help you work out an agreement that protects the rights of the children as well as a parent.
  • Child Support: Support payments are intended for the well-being of the children. We will assist you in obtaining the necessary amount of child support and in making sure the support order is enforced.
  • Modifications to Agreements: Whether it’s a modification to your child custody agreement, visitation rights or your court ordered support, we can assist you.
  • Contempt of Existing Family Law Agreements: If existing agreements are not being met, we will assist you in asking the court to find the other part in contempt.
  • Paternity: If there is ever any question regarding who fathered a child, an experienced paternity lawyer must represent you in a Massachusetts Family Court. And if a marriage is headed toward divorce, an experienced attorney can assist you in resolving the paternity issues before the divorce and custody issues are finalized.
  • Visitation: We represent both mothers and Fathers in Massachusetts Family Court to ensure you keep – or gain – parental visitation rights.
  • Prenuptial Agreements: We help non-married couples plan for their future through the use of prenuptial agreements and cohabitation agreements. Properly-drafted prenuptial agreements and cohabitation agreements can help keep a marriage healthy and well-organized. In the event of a divorce, prenuptial agreements allow the couples to separate assets peaceably.
  • Cohabitation Agreements: A cohabitation agreement will partially protect unmarried couples by defining their rights and obligations with regard to one another.
  • Restraining Orders: During a contentious separation or divorce, protecting yourself and your children is vital. We make sure emergency restraining orders are in place and adhered to.
