Head’s up — MassLegalHelp is getting a new look!

At the beginning of March, we will be relaunching this website with a brand-new look. You may notice some things moved around, but our main content will stay the same. We hope the improved design will make it easier to find what you are looking for.

  • their children's safety at school
  • their children's education, and
  • with the ability of custodial parents to support their children's education.
