Massachusetts Family Laws

Welcome to FindLaw's Massachusetts Family Laws section, with useful and constantly updated information about such topics as marriage, divorce, adoption, child support, and child custody. Many of these laws are similar to those of other states, with some minor differences. For instance, Massachusetts does not require a blood test or medical examination for couples wishing to get married, as some other states do. Also, Massachusetts allows same-sex couples to get married. As a practice area, family law also includes child abuse, domestic abuse, stalking, and protective orders (all of which cross over into criminal law as well). Click on a topic below to learn more.
