Don’t Let a Divorce Negatively Impact Your Family’s Future

Change is hard to accept, especially when that change is being made to your family structure. However, change can also be good. When you’re ready to pursue a fresh start through filing for divorce, contact us. We understand the difficulties that a divorce can bring, but we’re here to help you navigate the process effectively and efficiently while maintaining a compassionate approach along the way.

When you and your spouse have children, the process of divorce becomes more complex. In addition to the equitable division of property and the possible issue of spousal support, a custody arrangement and child support arrangement must be made. Our attorney, Paul J. Sweeney, is extensively experienced in helping families create parenting plans that fit their unique needs. We put you and your child’s best interests first.

We’ll take a collaborative approach to your divorce case. Tell us your story and your goals, and we’ll do everything in our power to secure the outcome you need to move forward with confidence. While divorce may be perceived as the failure of a marriage, this is not always the case. A divorce may be the best choice for you and your spouse to have the opportunity to pursue the future you both deserve.

What Our Clients Say

I have been a client of Attorney Paul Sweeney’s since 2011. Paul Sweeney is the Mother Theresa of lawyers. He and his staff have always been so compassionate, caring and positive. I honestly can say I would not be where I am today without Paul Sweeney.

Pam C.

Attorney Sweeney represented me through my divorce and was able to negotiate a quick settlement which awarded me joint physical custody of my four children without having to go through a costly trial.

Paul T.

Paul Sweeney and his assistant Susanne, were extremely helpful during my long legal battle with some disagreeable family members. I hired him to handle two estate cases that were terribly complicated and he was always responsive to my feelings and questions.

Past Case Results

Alimony Termination
After Cohabitation

We represented the ex-husband who believed his ex-wife was cohabitating. We engaged a private detective to collect evidence of the cohabitation. We were able to terminate alimony with a final payment of a modest lump sum to the ex-wife.

Unreported Income

We represented a wife whose husband claimed to be disabled. We were able to prove at trial that the husband was currently working, despite receiving disability payments. We proved these through the wife’s testimony, comparison of the husband’s deposits into his bank account, and receipts of large cash purchases, which the wife had saved.
