Rutland Family Law Attorney
Divorce and Family Legal Advocacy
Every family law matter, especially divorce, is different in some respect from others. It is extremely important at the onset to be able to discover and isolate the individual characteristics of each divorce or family law matter and treat neither the client nor the case as if it were commonplace. Careful attention must be paid not only to the parties to a divorce, but to other family members who are also affected.
At Mr. Parisi’s office, we serve clients in Rutland and throughout Vermont, we are dedicated to providing individualized counsel and sound advocacy focused on achieving the best possible outcome for our clients. We take a personal approach to identify your objectives and then develop a tailored solution to meet your needs.
Our Rutland County family lawyer is experienced with cases involving:
- Child custody
- Child support
- Spousal support
- Modifications and enforcement
- Prenuptial agreements
- Postnuptial agreements
- Civil unions
Protecting Your Family During Divorce
While a divorce is pending, the status quo must be maintained as much as possible for the benefit of the children, who often find themselves more involved in the process than they ought to be. It is also important to strive for a custody arrangement that optimizes the amount of time the children spend with each parent, provided the optimization of parent-child contact does not destabilize or interfere with the child’s daily routine.
After taking care of the children, issues of child support, spousal maintenance, and fair and equitable distribution of marital assets all must be dealt with, leaving neither party feeling bitter or resentful. These feelings eventually reflect themselves in a poor relationship between the divorcing parties and ultimately affect the children.
Experienced in Complex Family Legal Disputes
Our firm represented the nonbiological mother of a child born to a civil union in a complex custody dispute. We are experienced in handling even the most complex cases, including this case involving visitation rights for a nonbiological parent after a dissolved civil union. Attorney Theodore A. Parisi Jr. Esq., won this case on appeal in the Vermont Supreme Court.
