If your spouse has mentioned divorce, but has not yet filed a complaint or obtained an attorney, or if you are considering divorce, but are not sure how to proceed, an initial consultation is available and recommended. Contact Attorney Barnes at 617-335-9946 to schedule an initial consultation.

Among other things, she will advise you on what documents you need to obtain before you file for divorce or leave the house. Attorney Barnes also will discuss with you the possibility of reconciliation with your spouse, and whether this is achievable.

Attorney Barnes will explain the legal procedure and terms such as Joint Marital Assets, Child Support, Child Custody, Alimony, Modifications, Contempts, and Visitation, among other legal terms of art.

Attorney Barnes will help you though this process, making it as understandable and amenable as possible.
