Parental Rights

Parental Rights Lawyers in Quincy, MA

Serving Parents in the Greater Boston Metro Area

Understanding your parental rights is crucial, especially if you are involved in an upcoming divorce, separation, paternity matter, or custody dispute. 

These rights include physical custody (residing with the child) and legal custody (making decisions about the child's welfare, including education, health, and religion). Parents also have the right to visitation if they do not have physical custody. 

You are additionally entitled to seek changes to custody or visitation orders if you or your child have undergone substantial changes in circumstances that make the existing custody arrangements unworkable.

We have extensive experience handling complex family law matters at Davis Law Group. We approach every case with empathy, understanding the emotional toll these situations can take. Our team is dedicated to preserving your parental rights while ensuring the best outcome for your child.

Parental Rights Overview in Massachusetts

Without understanding your parental rights, you could suffer significant consequences in child-related legal issues. 

Examples of those consequences could include: 

  • Losing custody or visitation rights: If you're unaware of your rights, you might not know how to properly fight for custody or visitation in case of a divorce or separation. This could result in losing access to your child.
  • Unfair financial burden: You may end up shouldering more than your fair share of financial responsibilities, such as child support or medical expenses if you don't understand what you're legally obligated to provide.
  • Violations: If you're uninformed about your rights, others may take advantage of this and violate them. This could include the other parent or even legal entities.
  • Inability to make decisions for your child: Parental rights often include being able to make crucial decisions related to your child's education, religion, or medical treatment. Not knowing these rights could lead to your input being ignored.
  • Legal consequences: Sometimes, not understanding your parental rights could lead to other legal trouble. For example, you could face penalties if you unknowingly violate a custody agreement.

    - Kelly
    "Jay and the firm have cared about my specific needs as a client."
    I have used the services of Davis Law Group a number of times during the past 20 years and found them to be an extremely professional and caring law firm. Specifically I have used them for real estate transactions and for estate planning, wills, and healthcare proxies, with Jay Davis and Maryanne McGonagle as my primary attorneys. Whereas some law firms use boiler plates and treat clients as transactions, Jay and the firm have cared about my specific needs as a client and customized to those needs. I highly recommend this firm.
    - Rob
    "I will definitely be using them again!"
    I had an all around great experience working with Ryan Medeiros and Davis Law Group. Highly recommend! Ryan was knowledgeable and accessible, and knew what it would take to get the job done. I will definitely be using them again!
    - Mark
    "They have always done right by us."
    Three generations of my family have trusted Davis Law Group with our legal needs and they have always done right by us. Since April I have been working non-stop with Mary Anne McGonagle and Jay Davis to navigate and probate an excruciatingly-complicated estate. Both Mary Anne and Jay have gone out of their way numerous times on my behalf and have vigorously protected my interests in the face of some fairly significant headwinds. I could not be more thankful for, and appreciative of, their attention and the care they have demonstrated for my family.
    - Bryan
    "What she did was truly above and beyond my expectation."
    I benefited a lot from a recent consultation with Mary Anne. She is very knowledgeable in the area of landlord-tenant law, but what expressed me the most is her ethics. Although it was a free consultation, she still took it very seriously and spent the time to read my files prior to the call. During the session, she made complex legal issues easy to understand, analyzed my case and offer very good advice. She also worked very hard and communicated with me even after her normal work hours. What she did was truly above and beyond my expectation.
