Statutes found in MGL Chapter 208 govern divorce in Massachusetts. Although this statute provides guidance for judges to make decisions regarding your case, the Court must also apply the vast amount of prior case law decisions to support its decisions.
Case law is a rich body of judge made law that applies the legislative made statute to particular circumstances, important because this is how the judge applies and interprets the statute. A judge must follow both, the statute, and the case law. Our staff prides itself on constantly reviewing new case law that may affect your particular divorce matter. For examples of recent case law decisions, please see our “In the News” features.
