Find A Custody Agreement That Works For Your Family
When a marriage between parents ends in divorce or when unmarried parents separate, the parent-child relationship does not go away. The most important legal issues facing parents in this situation involves the future care and well-being of the children.

If you face a child custody issue in Massachusetts, the attorneys at George & Davis, P.C., are here to protect your parental rights and the best interests of your children.

Karen Davis is an experienced family law attorney and a mother of three. She knows the law and understands the tremendous personal stakes that accompany child custody and visitation matters.

Child Custody Disputes

Child custody disputes are among the most sensitive and contentious in all of the law. Whenever possible, we guide our clients to amicable resolutions to these disputes. We understand that parties are sometimes unwilling to be reasonable, however, and we are always prepared for strong litigation.

The courts look at several factors when determining child custody arrangements, including the established living pattern of the child, and the ability of each parent to care for the child and the best interests of the child.

In most cases, the child is best served by maintaining a meaningful relationship with both parents. We are here to ensure that your child-parent relationship remains strong in the wake of a divorce or separation.

Bridging A Better Way Forward For Divorcing Couples
Issues that personally affect you and your family can be stressful and highly emotional. When it comes to matters involving your finances or the amount of time you spend with your children, disagreements are fairly common and often require the involvement of a third party to sort out.

Many spouses in Massachusetts who choose to divorce or separate aim to do so in a constructive and respectful manner. For these individuals, mediation serves as an attractive alternative to a traditional divorce or custody battlewhere major decisions with regard to the distribution of marital property and parenting time and visitation are made by a judge and the courts.

The Mediation Process

Through the mediation process, divorcing spouses come together to discuss, negotiate and finalize the terms of a divorce including property, support and parenting issues. When successful, mediation allows spouses to maintain more control over the outcome of their divorce. It also provides for opportunities to find creative solutions when dividing property and figuring out matters related to their children.

Our role in the mediation process is to help parties come to a fair and reasonable solution to what is often a difficult and confusing process. As a mediator, we do not act as a traditional family law attorney or represent either party individually, but rather provide information to help each spouse understand the issues at hand and the related financial and legal considerations. The goal is to procure an agreement that both spouses consider to be fair and mutually beneficial. Once a final agreement is reached, we draft all of the necessary documents to file and finalize your divorce.
