Divorce Across State Lines

As Google Maps shows, you can barely tell the difference between the two! Just, don't say that to anyone from RI.

Hi there,

Lots of us live on or close to the Massachusetts/Rhode Island state border. We don’t even think about it as we cross back and forth. But when you’re involved in a divorce and one of you moves to the other state, this can add a layer of complexity to the process. There are significant differences in some aspects of the law.

Because of this, I changed the name of the blog from Massachusetts Divorce Law Monitor to Divorce Law Monitor. We are lucky to have a very talented attorney in our group, Andrea Dunbar, who is not only licensed in both states, but truly practices in both. This has proved invaluable and I am very pleased to have her share her knowledge with you.

The next post will be from Andrea and will address the difficulties of interstate custody cases.

Stay cool today!

Best,
Nancy
