Family Law Practice Areas

Law Office of Attorney Valerie A. Ross

When you are involved in a divorce or family law dispute, you want an experienced lawyer to protect your interests. You want an attorney who understands custody, visitation, support and property issues — one who has successfully helped others in similar circumstances.

At the Law Office of Valerie A. Ross, we have worked closely with men and women throughout the Greater Boston area since 1984, handling a broad range of family law matters, including child custody and support, as well as the modification or enforcement of existing divorce judgments.

We are zealous advocates for our clients, making sure their goals and best interests are at the forefront of the case and keeping them informed throughout the process. This commitment to a high level of personal service ensures that you always work directly with Attorney Ross and never with an associate or paralegal.

We focus our practice on divorce and family law matters, including issues involving:

Child custody and visitation

We will work with you to establish parenting plans that are in the best interests of your children, but that also give you a meaningful role in the growth and development of your child.

Child support

We will review all proposed child support orders for compliance with the new Massachusetts guidelines and will verify that all income is included in the calculation, including self-employment, and seasonal and commission-based income.

Property division

We will work toward reaching a fair settlement or judgment that distributes all marital assets equitably.

Post-judgment requests for modification

We will advise you in proceedings to modify the terms of an existing child custody, visitation, child support or alimony order.

Contempt proceedings to enforce a divorce decree

We will protect your rights in proceedings to enforce child custody, visitation, child support or spousal support orders.

We also handle other matters related to or arising out of a marriage dissolution, including alimony, the division of marital property and grandparents’ rights.
