Massachusetts Divorce Attorney

Serving Throughout Bristol County, Plymouth County & Norfolk County

The Farias Family Law, P.C is a premier Massachusetts Divorce Law Firm with offices in Easton and Fall River, Massachusetts. The firm’s focus is Divorce and Family Law, including divorce, alimony, property division, child support, child custody and visitation, modifications, contempt, prenuptial agreements, etc.

The firm’s foundation is Attorney Bill Farias, who believes that aggressive representation combined with the highest quality client service are the keys to client success. The firm will help you address your immediate family law needs while also helping you develop a plan for long-term success.

Before turning to the law, Attorney Farias also worked for the Department of Children and Families, gaining valuable experience in a variety of areas that translate well to divorce and family law. He worked closely with mental health specialists, behavioral specialists, police, the courts, doctors, school personnel, and parenting coordinators to name a few. This experience helps him more accurately assess your divorce and family law issues and craft effective solutions.

Attorney Farias spent the early part of his legal career developing the litigations skills necessary for an aggressive litigation philosophy. He was a prosecutor for the Bristol County District Attorney’s Office, handling thousands of cases, many of them requiring jury trials and hearings. He accumulated more courtroom experience in a short amount of time than many attorneys will gain in their entire careers. His litigation experience and philosophy are geared toward obtaining leverage in the case to put you in a better position to obtain a more favorable outcome.

A principle upon which the firm is founded is that quality client service is especially important in this area of practice. When people are going through family law issues, they’re at their most vulnerable – short of death or illness, few things impact a person’s life more than family in crisis. The firm’s sensitivity to this reality is what led to the implementation of a structure that ensures that clients are educated, informed, and entitled to the highest level of accessibility for support and questions. You’ll be guided through the process in a manner that makes the experience as smooth as possible.

FAQs About Massachusetts Divorce

How to respond to a divorce summons?

Immediately contact an attorney. You have 20 days to respond to the complaint with your position on the divorce and to make requests yourself – the document to file is called an answer and counterclaim. Although this deadline can be extended under certain circumstances, it’s best to act quickly. By the time you receive a divorce summons, you probably should’ve already contacted an attorney, but if you haven’t, you should certainly act quickly once you’re served to ensure you respond in a timely manner and begin to plan your strategy.
