The Bureau’s Family law practice typically helps clients obtain divorces, child custody, or separate child support. Many of our cases involve domestic violence. In such cases, we help clients secure protective orders against abusive partners, establish paternity, obtain and maintain custody of their children, and secure adequate alimony and/or child support.

The Bureau generally does not represent non-custodial parents; however, there are some exceptions to this policy. As with all potential clients, the Intake Committee reviews cases involving non-custodial parents who meet our exceptions very carefully before recommending acceptance.

The Bureau also offers a class about the Massachusetts divorce process. For more information, see our Pro Se Divorce Clinic page.
