Areas of Practice
The court process can be a grueling, painful and long. The Law Offices of Michael Grilli promises to make this process less stressful by providing clients with aggressive and affordable legal representation. Our areas of practice include:
Divorce is a very emotional and difficult situation which affects the entire family. At The Law Offices of Michael J. Grilli we are mindful of this and try to make the divorce process as easy as possible by providing litigation in the best interest of both the parents and children in an attempt to make this difficult time as amicable as possible.
One of the biggest problems with divorce and custody battles is that it imposes on children the decision of whom to live with. Usually, parents divorce when children are small and they have no say in where they go. Since the child cannot choose, this leads to custody battles that end in split/joint custody or sole custody. Whatever the choice may be between the types of custody, either will prove detrimental to the child. At The Law Offices of Michael J. Grilli our goal is to provide the very best litigation while protecting the children's best interest.
After custody is decided, visitation/parenting time is usually sought. The Law Offices of Michael J. Grilli has litigated many cases involving custody and parenting time/visitation which has resulted in happy clients and happy families. Many factors can determine these matters, with the children's best interest being the most important. The Law Offices of Michael J. Grilli focuses on helping parents remember what's important, which often leads to agreements that save our clients money.

The Department of Children & Families (DCF) is a state agency that protects children from many issues such as neglect and abuse. The Law Offices of Michael J. Grilli has litigated many cases in Western Massachusetts involving The DCF with the goal of protecting our most important investment, your children and family.

Massachusetts law says both parents must support their children. It does not matter if the parents are married, divorced, separated, or have never been married. If your children live with you a majority of the time you are the "custodial" parent. If your children live with the other parent a majority of the time, you are the "non-custodial" parent. Usually, the non-custodial parent pays child support to the custodial parent. The Law Offices of Michael J. Grilli can guide you through the complex child support guidelines of Massachusetts and help you calculate child support and determine what's in the children's best interest.
