What Are Complaints in Equity?
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 does 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 a 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.
