Protecting our clients in and out of court

At Fitzpatrick Family Law, we understand that every family law situation is different. We listen to your concerns and tailor our legal services to meet your specific needs and challenges. We guide you through the legal process from start to finish, making sure you understand the applicable law, your rights and the possible outcomes of your case. We ensure you are equipped to make informed decisions. And we can show you options even when you think you don't have any.

Fitzpatrick Family Law assists clients with the following types of family law matters:

  • Dissolution of marriage or divorce occurs when a marriage is legally terminated. Dissolution actions can be uncontested or contested. We provide you with experienced guidance and representation. We can assist with negotiation of agreements for dividing assets and debts, providing for minor children, dealing with maintenance issues or representing you in court.
  • Child custody and parenting time actions determine the primary residence of a child, the time the child spends with each parent and who has the authority to make major decisions on behalf of the child. We will advise you and guide you through the entire process, whether your case involves negotiating a parenting agreement or litigating a contested proceeding.
  • Modifications are changes made to final agreements or court orders relating to child custody, parenting time and support when there has been a substantial change in circumstances. We can protect your interests as time passes and circumstances change.
  • Child support is determined by formulas set by the state. We ensure the court has accurate information, including proper review of deductions to gross income, to reach a fair decision on your behalf.
  • Our goal in spousal support cases is for our clients to wind up with a fair spousal support award or obligation even in the most complex cases.
