We can help guide you to a resolution that is right for you and for your family.

Fitzpatrick Family Law advocates for you in the following matters:

  • Dissolution of marriage (divorce) - These actions legally terminate a marriage. Dissolution actions can be uncontested or contested. We provide you with experienced guidance and representation.
  • Property division - How shall marital property and debts will be distributed? We help you sort this out to achieve a fair and equitable result.
  • Spousal support (also known as alimony) - Notoriously difficult to predict because there are no firm guidelines, spousal maintenance requires a thorough analysis of the facts specific to your case. Based on those facts we help you receive the most favorable outcome.
  • Child custody and parenting time - We negotiate parenting and visitation agreements that are in your child's best interests.
  • Child support - The amount of child support is determined by formulas set by the state. We ensure the court has accurate information to reach a fair decision on your behalf.
  • Modifications - Changes may be made to final agreements or court orders relating to child custody, parenting time and visitation and support when there has been a substantial change in circumstances. We can protect your interests as times change.
