Personal and Professional Legal Services in the Heart of Vermont

Supportive Family Law Services

Family law issues strike us on the most personal level and are emotionally difficult. At The Law Office of Amy K. Butler, Esquire, PLLC, I have helped countless clients navigate the turbulent waters of family law, and I am confident I can do the same for you.

Mediation Services

I use mediation to help my clients reach a resolution their family law matter without provoking unnecessary conflict between the parties. Changes in the family are stressful enough; using mediation, I will help you identify mutually acceptable arrangements on issues such as the terms of divorce, custody and co-parenting.


Divorce can always be a challenge, whether you are interested in initiating a divorce or you have been served with a complaint for divorce, I can help. A change in family structure brought on by divorce or separation shakes up the entire family unit. It can have an impact not only on those immediately involved in the dispute, but on friends and family, too. In my divorce work, I realize that you are in the midst of substantial life changes.  It is my goal as your attorney to make the court process as simple and painless as possible for you. I will begin the process by meeting to discuss the specifics of your situation. I will give you a general overview of how the divorce process works and how I will help you identify your priorities and your ideal outcome.

Resolving Issues In High-Asset Divorce

When high assets are involved in a divorce, it can be challenging for couples to agree on the division of their marital property. I can help high-income couples find a resolution that best fits their financial and personal needs for several types of assets, including:

  • Ownership of business and properties
  • Personal property
  • Real estate
  • Stocks, bonds and other investments
  • Retirement

You can find the most common questions about divorce on my FAQ page. There, I provide some insight on what you can expect and why it is important to hire an attorney who will protect your rights.


The separation of a couple can also involve issues of child custody, known in Vermont as “parental rights and responsibilities.” From my perspective, taking care of children is the single most intimate area where life and law intersect. I will work with you in identifying your goals regarding rights and responsibilities of your child. It is my opinion that a negotiated order is better in the long run for you and your child than one reached through litigation. In matters of custody disputes, I will prepare for litigation, while working hard to help you reach an agreement with your child’s other parent.

In addition to the above issues, I offer advice and representation in the following matters:

  • Alimony
