My name is Stephen Hitner and I was divorced in 1999.
After spending hundreds of thousands of dollars from 1996 till 2009 in the litigation process, I set out to change the Alimony Laws in Massachusetts. Guidelines and structure were needed so that no one would go thru the experience that I had. My divorce experience was so awful that I was featured in Boston Magazine.
It took me almost 8 years and on September 26, 2011, the Alimony Reform Act of 2011, was signed into law by Gov. Deval Patrick. After going through the process of changing the law, I realized the need in our community for a professional who can provide strategic and practical consulting to people transitioning through a divorce.
Please note: I am not, nor have been, a practicing attorney.
Steve was featured in the hit film Divorce Corp released in 2014, a documentary narrated by Dr. Drew Pinsky which highlights the inner workings of the $50 Billon a year U.S. family law industry and the wasteful practices seen in family courts across the country.
