A Special Needs Divorce: From Overwhelm to Success

Mary Ann Hughes is the proud mother of two special needs children, who fought victoriously for her sons’ futures when, after 21 years of marriage, she unexpectedly found herself in the throes of divorce. Mary Ann dedicated herself to get the best possible outcome for herself and her boys.  She focused her energies, time, and resources to make sure her precious sons’ short- and long-term needs would be met.

Mary Ann devoted herself to research and navigate all the issues and added complexities of a special needs divorce.  Not willing to accept anything less than a fair and just outcome for her family, Mary Ann’s case went all the way to trial.  Thanks to her hard work and the efforts of her team, the judge awarded a precedent-setting award, now being used as a benchmark in other cases.

Mary Ann is now taking the passion she had in her own fight for her children and her family’s future, as well as turning all the knowledge and experience she gained in her 2-year divorce journey, into building a business to help other special needs families. She founded Special Family Transitions, LLC, to help families navigate the complex and overwhelming world of special needs divorce.
