    Look at your retainer agreement that you signed with the attorney. How the attorney charges is spelled out in that document. I know that a lot of attorneys do charge in minimum increments. I hope this helps.

    The best attorney is the one that is going to advocate to protect and promote your interests, and at the same time provide you with practical advice. If you have an amicable divorce, then costs should be minimal. However, if it is a contentious situation, it is going to cost a lot more. Often times it is the clients who drive up costs by arguing over the minutia. Talk with your attorney and tell them your budget, as well as what is it you expect from the divorce process. Interview the attorney....

    Although it is.highly unlikely your husband will have a direct claim against your expected inheritance, it can be used for calculating an equitable.distribution of assets in final divorce proceedings and for other reasons ( I.e. alimony and child support calculations) You need to speak with an attorney very soon to discuss the appropriate means of proceeding so as to protect and preserve these assets. Best of luck to you, and I wish your parents well.

    The length of time the process takes depends upon the behavior of the parties. If the only disagreement is alimony, there are guidelines the judge will follow, after full financial disclosure by both parties, to determine the appropriate amount of alimony. Of course, if the amount can be worked out between the parties prior to filing, the process can be very short. I hope this helps. Best of luck to you.

Whether or not this question is correctly classified as a Family Law Matter or perhaps 2. should be posted in another section of AVVO to garner the guidance you need.

    As my colleague pointed out, your ex fiancé needs to be given a notice equal to the rental period: for example, if you pay rent by the week, then one week's notice to vacate is required; if you pay by the month, then one month's notice is required. I would advise your grandparents to be very careful. The landlord/tenant laws in Massachusetts are fraught with pitfalls for the unwary. A consultation with an experienced landlord/tenant attorney might be wise. Best of luck to you.

    Until there is a court order stating there is no child support, child support is still in effect. If there have been substantial material changes in custody arrangements/financial circumstances since the original Child Support order issued by the court, then you could file a Complaint For Modification with the Court seeking an order reflecting those changes. However, until such an order issues, you are legally obligated to continue paying child support -- only the court can legally alter that...

    Thank you for posing this question. There is no law or statute in Massachusetts which obligates a parent to pay for their children's college education. You would need to look at the terms of your Separation Agreement. There is usually a provision in there which provides for this. Please read your agreement. If there is a provision regarding payment of college tuition and expenses, please feel free to post that provision here for an explanation as to how that provision applies in your...
