Fitzpatrick Family Law advocates for you in the following matters:

  • Divorce - These actions legally terminate a marriage. Dissolution actions can be uncontested or contested. We provide you with experienced guidance and representation in all situations.
  • Property division - How shall marital property and debts will be distributed? We help you sort this out to achieve a fair and equitable result.
  • Alimony - Each individual action 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.
  • Grandparent and third party custody or guardianship - Sometimes a child's biological parents are not able to care for them. Sometimes a child's best interests can be met only by a grandparent or another third party. Discuss your options with Attorney Fitzpatrick.
  • 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, child support, alimony, and other situations when there has been a substantial change in circumstances. We can protect your interests as times change.
