A Complaint in Equity is filed when there is no legal remedy to answer a situation that may arise between two or more litigants.   Since Massachusetts doe not have a common law marriage statute, couples who intermingle finances may find themselves in a situation where no common law or statutory provision allows them to ask the court to hear and determine their contest.  In such circumstance those persons may be in a position where, if they were not allowed to petition a court with equitable jurisdiction for assistance, substantial injustice may result.

Attorney John G. DiPiano has successfully litigated Complaints in Equity in those unusual circumstances where no other manner of judicial redress was available.
