We have intentionally designed Wilchins Cosentino & Novins as a mid-sized law firm to provide exceptional service and exceptional value to our clients. At WCN, we are large enough to have expertise in many law practices including family law, while small enough to deliver exceptional service through a personalized, concierge approach. We serve clients in Massachusetts with our primary office in Wellesley, MA and additional offices in Chelmsford and Boston.
Family law cases can involve complex collateral questions regarding taxes, trusts and estates and business entities, and family lawyers at small family law firms may not have ready access to tax attorneys, trust and estate attorneys, corporate and real estate attorneys to assist and advise their clients on such questions. As a mid-sized law firm, we have these experienced attorneys available to collaborate, working together on our clients’ behalf at a value Boston-based firms cannot match.
Modification of an existing court order or judgment may be required due to changes in employment, marital status or changing needs of children. One common basis for a child support modification is where the children are attending or preparing to attend college, particularly in cases where the children were very young at the time of the divorce and it would have been premature to account for college expenses. Our family law attorneys also frequently represent clients in pursuing or responding to complaints for modification of parenting plans or alimony based on material changes in the parties’ circumstances.
Following trial of a modification of alimony case, we successfully proved that the payor had undisclosed sources of income available to pay alimony, resulting in a larger award than our client would otherwise have received.
