FAMILY LAWYERS Serving Southern VT

Our firm represents individuals in all aspects of family law including divorce and separation, child custody and visitation, paternity/parentage, alimony and child support. Family law is a complex area of legal practice that often requires significant time and resources to resolve the issues that arise. We believe that careful planning and active representation can have positive results. We assist clients with issues that arise before, during and after a marriage with the goal of protecting and promoting positive relationships where possible and reducing the potential for difficulties when relationships fail. We work diligently to protect our clients through these changes.
