Divorce Defined

Divorce Defined

A Divorce formally dissolves a legal marriage.

Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 208 presents the guidelines on how to proceed with a Divorce, including how to file for divorce on a specific ground of misconduct (adultery, abandonment, abuse, etc.) or via an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage.

Divorce for Specific Grounds of Misconduct

Achieving a Judgment of Absolute Divorce based upon a specific ground of misconduct by your spouse requires evidence of the misconduct or wrongdoing. M.G.L c. 208, §1, General Provisions, specifically states all grounds for divorce in Massachusetts. When the problems have risen to such an unsustainable level that a leading divorce attorney is needed, Attorney Aaron E. Allen of the Allen Law Group, P.C. can help!

Consulting with Attorney Allen of the Allen Law Group, P.C., will lead you to the resolution you desire.

Divorce based upon Irretrievable Breakdown of the Marriage

Many states, including MA, have enacted the “no-fault” divorce laws which do not require a specific showing of spousal misconduct. These laws were enacted as a response to outdated divorce statutes that have long required proof of adultery or some other act of spousal misconduct in a court of law.

The two ways to file for Divorce in Massachusetts are described in M.G.L. c. 208, § 1A and M.G.L. c. 208, § 1B.

An aggressive divorce lawyer like Attorney Allen can help you navigate through these statutes and show you the way to succeed in acquiring a divorce while preserving your best interests and that of your family.



Do you have children? Have you been with your spouse for more than ten years? Is there a pre-nuptial agreement in place?

With divorce comes a myriad of other legal issues including alimony, property division, and, if you have children, that makes it all the more complicated with child support and child custody issues to resolve. M.G.L. c. 208 has more than 55 sections to navigate.
