Family Law

Fitzpatrick Lentz & Bubba has the experience to help you in all aspects of family law and domestic relations.

Fitzpatrick Lentz & Bubba handles divorce, alimony, support and custody/visitation matters, in cases ranging from amicable settlements to hotly contested proceedings. In addition, our attorneys have represented clients in guardianship issues.


Our Service Areas

 
  • Divorce, spousal support and alimony
  • Annulments and legal separation
  • Property valuation and division
  • Child custody, child support and child visitation
  • Protection from Abuse orders
  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
  • Guardianships

We are uniquely equipped to address issues of equitable distribution and the often complex questions regarding the valuation of marital assets. To provide full service to our corporate and business clients, the family law department, in conjunction with our estate planning and taxation department, can assist with the maintenance and preservation of assets.

If a person’s ability to make decisions about his or her finances and medical treatment becomes compromised due to mental illness, an accident or another reason, he or she may need to have a guardian appointed by the court. A guardian can make important decisions on his or her behalf when the family does not have the guidance, or a power of attorney or healthcare directive.  Whether an emergency circumstance warrants a temporary order, or full guardianship is required for long-term care, our attorneys are well-qualified to advise your family on your options and walk you through the process of petitioning the court to gain decision-making power as a guardian.
