Recent Announcements

The Child Support Guidelines have recently been revised. Please make an appointment to discuss your current support order if you believe your child support order may now be outdated.

Recent Announcements

The Middlesex Sheriff’s Office has issued a warning regarding an ongoing jury duty scam in the area. Callers in the area are posing as members of the sheriff’s office and are informing residents that they need to resolve court and jury-related issues immediately.

The reason for the scam is to try and extort money out of residents who happen to be riled up by the message these scammers are leaving. If you have received any phone calls regarding jury duty, court offenses, or warrants from the Middlesex sheriff’s office, then please make sure that they are legitimate before sending anyone any money.

“Nationwide, these scammers are attempting to use the criminal justice system and the threat of arrest as a tool to frighten people into paying large sums of money. We want residents to be aware of these scams and these tactics in order to better protect themselves.” – Middlesex Sheriff Peter J. Koutoujian

On January 27, 2017, President Trump signed an Executive Order which bans nationals of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen from entering the United States. Due to the broad wording of this Order and confusion that it has caused, all nationals of the listed seven countries, including legal permanent residents (those with green cards) should not travel outside of the United States as they may not be allowed to re-enter. Please feel free to contact the immigration lawyers at LaFountain & Wollman, P.C. regarding any immigration questions, including questions about how President Trumps Executive Orders will affect you.

After a while, many couples both decide they were not “meant to be,” and come to a general understanding on what they want to happen next. When that occurs, quickly getting the process over with can save countless months’ worth of stress, anxiety, uncertainty, agitation, hostility, and discomfort. Even the most amicable of separating couples can find themselves arguing over minor and trivial annoyances when trying to navigate the legal process of their marital dissolution.

Know Someone in This Situation? We Can Help

If you or someone you know is in this situation, we can help bring the marriage to a quick and low-cost resolution. Although we can only represent one spouse in any given divorce under the law, we can help you quickly convert your tentative agreement into a formal divorce agreement for your spouse to review, and can also draft the legal papers that must be filed with it (except for one standard form that must be completed by your spouse – we can give them a blank copy though). Once both sides are in agreement on the legal documents, we get them filed and arrange for a court hearing to finalize the matter.

Same-Day Filing

In one county, we can often get the papers filed and presented to the judge on the same day or even morning!!!!! Again, in some cases we can literally file the completed papers together, and leave court before lunch with the case already resolved. Even in courts where that is not possible, the delay before the hearing is generally not too long when everything is properly filed, and in most cases having the agreement signed and filed will reduce the stress and fighting a great deal during the wait.

We Can Help You Reach A Joint Agreement Faster

Finally, even if there are a few issues in dispute, getting the assistance of counsel to finalize the remaining issues can help reach a joint agreement faster and with less stress than going it alone. This can be done before anyone files for divorce in hopes of doing so together, or it can be done after one side files.
