Like other family courts in Boston and throughout Massachusetts, the judges in Middlesex County are especially sensitive and concerned about the effect of divorce on children. They are particularly committed to resolving matters in the best interest of each child. This standard applies not only to new divorce cases but to post-judgment matters like modifications and contempts.
Don't Even Think About Representing Yourself in Middlesex County
We urge people to not even consider self-representation if they need to appear in the Middlesex Probate and Family Court. Because this court is extremely busy, the halls are crowded and the cases move swiftly. People who try to appear for themselves can get in over their heads very quickly. The judges in this court hold self-represented litigants to the same standards as attorneys and they make no allowances for people who represent themselves. In short, you should not experiment with your divorce or other family law matter in Middlesex County Court. When you are before Judge DeGangi, Judge Kaplan, Judge Monks, or any of the other justices in Middlesex county, the stakes are simply too high.
