Court Appointments

Ryan Faenza Carey P.C. Attorneys Representing Children

Attorneys Representing Children

Several members of the firm volunteer for the ARC program wherein a Judge will assign an attorney to represent a child in a case. This differs from a court appointed Guardian Ad Litem as the GAL is required held to the best interests of the child(ren) whereas ARC presents to the Court the child’s point of view and wishes. Generally this is for older children who need an advocate in the Court. The attorneys at RFC also take on private appointments to act as ARC when appropriate.

Special Masters

Attorneys at RFC are often appointed by the Court Judges to be a special master for specific issues that need oversight, even when both sides are represented by counsel. One example may be a discovery master, wherein an attorney of the firm is a neutral party who reviews the discovery disputes in a pending case and is given authority to make orders to the Court. An attorney may also be appointed as a real estate master to assist in disputes regarding the sale of real estate. The attorneys at RFC are available to take on private appointments to be a Special Master in cases wherein the parties agree without court involvement.

What Our Clients Say

“Thank you again for your support and advocacy over the past 6+ months. [My daughter] moved to California on Monday and is on her way to a new beginning. I know that separation and divorce, as well as all the personal trauma involved, is something you deal with every day in your work. I hope you appreciate the impact you have. Your presence and responsiveness through many crises were invaluable to our family and we will be forever grateful.’

L.E. (Dover, MA), client of Kathryn J. Schwartz

This is my best experience with attorneys to date. Attorney Sparks (“Andy”) is friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. I receive prompt updates on my legal matters and helpful suggestions on how to proceed with my challenging situation. Thank you Andy and everyone on the legal team at Ryan Faenza Carey!

Dale Withers, client of Andrew Wesley Sparks

“When my divorce proceedings first started, I was emotional, confused, and in all honesty, scared.  My divorce was messy.  Lies were told about me, and I was dealing with an ex that had only his best interests in mind, rather than our child’s’.  I felt as though Jennifer cared as much about what was right for my daughter as I did, and she fought extremely hard for that. Not only did Jennifer coach me in how to handle things legally and represent me to get the outcome I deserved, but she listened and helped me gain the confidence I needed to stand up for myself.   I came out of this process a different, stronger person, and I have Jennifer to thank for that.”

T.M., client of Jennifer F. Liddell

“Thank you very much for all of the hard work you have put into my divorce, the only reason I felt comfortable to represent myself yesterday was because you have already paved the road for me, you had everything in place, all I had to do was go and answer some questions. My divorce last for about 1 year, during that 1 year I never had any problem to reach you, even on your busiest day you always ensure to return my call before you go home.

For all of the documents and filings, you always make sure that I review them first to ensure that we are not missing anything and by doing that, not only you make me feel that you put me in the driver seat, but also you have taught me a lot about the process and the court system in MA. Due to your hard work, now I have my daughter and I don’t have to pay child support anymore.

Again, thank you very much and I feel comfortable to refer to you anybody I know who wants to get divorce.”

S.B. (Plainville, MA), client of Kathryn J. Schwartz

“Kathryn- Thanks so much for keeping on top of [everything] for me. With your help, my life is finally back on track!”
