Family Law is a practice area that deals with the legal issues involving family relationships. With our strong passion for preserving families, we carefully evaluate potential divorce cases and typically require several sessions of counseling before moving forward with an action for divorce.

We handle the following family matters:
  • Get your child back from the State
  • Get your grandchild/relative from foster care
  • Child Custody & Visitation
  • Child Support
  • Domestic Violence
  • Father’s rights whom are in prison 
  • Modification of Custody or Support
At the Butler Law Firm, we focus on providing our clients with the care and commitment they need from an attorney and grow an ongoing relationship with our clients. We will provide you with comprehensive legal guidance to protect your rights, while zealously advocating for you in court.  Click Here See a bill pending to make equal 50/50 parenting time the norm and not the exception.
