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, we have helped countless clients navigate the turbulent waters of family law, and we are confident we can do the same for you.
Divorce can always be a challenge, whether you are interested in initiating a divorce or you have been served with a complaint for divorce, we 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, both immediate and extended. In our divorce work, we realize that you are in the midst of substantial life changes. It is our goal to make the court process as simple and pain-free as possible for you.
We’ll begin by meeting to discuss the specifics of your situation. We will give you a general overview of how the divorce process works, and we will help you identify your priorities and your ideal outcome. We have answers to some of your questions on our FAQ page.
The separation of a couple can also involve issues of custody. From our perspective, the custody of children is the single most intimate area where life and law intersect. We will work with you in identifying your goals regarding custody of your child.
It is our opinion that in custody cases particularly, a negotiated order is better in the long run for you and your child than one reached through litigation. In matters of custody, we will prepare for litigation, while working hard to help you reach an agreement with your child’s other parent.
