A Renowned Massachusetts Divorce Lawyer Providing Solid Counsel

Assistance when you make the painful decision to divorce

The decision to end a marriage is a difficult one for all parties involved — difficult for each spouse and any children of the marriage. It is an emotionally draining process, fraught with some of the toughest decisions you may ever make for yourself and your children. You may also be faced with financial uncertainty when bank accounts, marital property and other joint assets are divided. With more than three decades of experience helping families in Salem through transitions as a result of divorce and changing child custody arrangements, Legasey & Associates can guide you through this difficult time. I, John Legasey, am your advocate, your mediator or your aggressive courtroom litigator, depending on which role best serves your interests.

Protecting your rights and those of your children to continued financial support

When there are children involved in a divorce, your future and your children’s well-being are, and should be, your paramount concerns. When you file for divorce, it is important to consider how child custody, child support, alimony and the division of marital assets affect all of you. I work with you to protect your rights in the following determinations:

  • Physical custody of the children
  • Visitation rights
  • Financial support for the children to be paid for by the noncustodial parent, during divorce and after the divorce is finalized
  • The division of assets acquired during the marriage
  • Alimony payments to the lesser-earning spouse

These issues and others must be addressed by a competent legal professional to ensure your rights and financial security after the divorce.

I understand how painful divorce can be

As both a lawyer and someone who has been divorced, I recognize how important it is to have committed counsel who can bring about an efficient resolution in divorce while remaining sensitive to the related issues of child custody and support. Some lawyers in Massachusetts litigate divorce as a rule. I, on the other hand, believe that litigation is not always necessary. I am frequently appointed by the courts to serve as a conciliator for divorcing couples, helping them reach a fair and reasonable conclusion outside of the courtroom. I take the same approach in my own law practice, focusing on the best solution to each client’s case
