Your Family's Future Matters

Learn How We Can Help

Child Custody

Though your marriage is ending, the two of you still need to figure out an arrangement that allows you to effectively parent your child or children. Whether you are seeking sole or joint custody or some other arrangement, it is vital to keep a level head and allow us to communicate on your behalf if you are unable to speak civilly with your ex. We’ll ensure your wishes are heard and your position is strong in mediation or court.

Spousal Support

When a couple divorces, the court may find it equitable for the higher-earning spouse to pay spousal support to the spouse who may have foregone a career in order to raise children or maintain the home. We can assess your situation and help you negotiate a fair spousal support agreement so that you can both move forward with security and confidence.

Child Support

During your divorce proceeding, the judge may determine that the non-custodial parent must pay child support to the custodial parent in order to assist with the costs of raising the child. Whatever the details of your child support dispute may be, Chapin Law Office is here to advocate for the best interests of you and your child.


Sometimes, a child or otherwise incapacitated adult needs a trusted individual to serve as their guardian and make important decisions on their behalf. We can help you navigate the guardianship process and work to resolve any disputes that may arise along the way.
