Child Custody And Support Attorneys

When parents of minor children divorce, child custody, visitation and child support issues can be contentious. Emotions often complicate custody and support discussions. Disputes over what is in the best interests of the children may seem to take center stage when a marriage between parents breaks down.

The lawyers at Nigro, Pettepit & Lucas, LLP, strive to empower their clients to make informed decisions about child custody arrangements to reach the most favorable outcome in each case, while protecting the best interests of the children. Parental rights are important in family law disputes; however, Massachusetts courts view the happiness and welfare of the children as paramount considerations in child custody determinations.
