Achieving Your Custody And Visitation Goals

Courts in Massachusetts always decide child custody and visitation matters in accordance with what they perceive to be “the best interest of the child.” In many cases, this means:

  • Joint legal custody in which the parents share important decisions regarding the child’s health, education and other matters
  • Primary physical custody for one parent with visitation rights granted to the other parent

Other arrangements are possible beyond these two, though, including joint physical custody or sole legal custody. With an understanding of how courts in our state view these matters and the criteria they use to make custody and visitation decisions, family law attorney Lisa Ruggieri works to obtain the outcome that is right for you and your child.

Modifications And Relocations

If your parenting time schedule becomes unworkable due to a change in circumstances for you or your child, seeking a modification of orders may be appropriate. By petitioning the courts, you may be able to obtain legal changes to a visitation plan. Further, if you must relocate due to job requirements or remarriage, any changes must be approved by the court.

She Was Aggressive And Never Backed Down

I found Lisa through reviews and was not disappointed. Lisa and her staff were great! They were very supportive and explained everything. She was aggressive and never backed down, even when I wanted to settle. She always looked out for my best interest, even when I didn’t want to. I can’t recall a single debate she lost during the entire case. If I were ever in a similar situation again (which will not be anytime in the foreseeable future!), I would call Lisa.
