Full-Service Family Law Firm in Cambridge, Massachusetts
Whether anticipating the joys of adoption or experiencing the frustrations of divorce, you want a competent, assertive attorney by your side. Attorney Steven A. Sussman will zealously advocate for your rights and protect your family during all family law proceedings, including:
Adopting a child brings happiness to families, but the biological parent’s change of heart or an immigration fiasco can turn a joyous occasion into a nightmare. We assist families with the complex legal procedures and frustrating red tape of the adoption process so you can feel secure about welcoming your child into your home.
Divorce should not lead to a financial crisis. We help you obtain the spousal support you rightfully deserve.
Child custody and visitation
We advocate for your parental rights so you can raise your children in a fit and healthy home.
Both parents share in the responsibility of raising their child. We support your child’s right to receive the financial support required for a healthy, happy upbringing divided fairly between both parents.
Child support modification
Child support payments remain the same unless and until the court modifies the child support order. If either the custodial or the non-custodial parent experiences a significant change in circumstances, we can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify child support payments accordingly.
Through mediation or litigation, our divorce law firm fights for your rights to get the best possible settlement or judgment, including fair distribution of assets and division of the marital home. We assist parents with child support payments and child custody rights.
Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
When Massachusetts authorities interfere with your parental rights, you need a zealous advocate who understands the bureaucratic red tape. We are skilled at maneuvering through the complex laws of Massachusetts to protect your parental rights and your child’s future prospects.
Mediation puts the decisions in your hands and can often provide more expedient, predictable results than going to trial. We can help you obtain the best possible divorce settlement.
Love can blind you to the potential for financial loss should your marriage fail. We expect the unexpected and draft premarital agreements that protect both spouses’ financial interests.
