Family and Domestic Law
Issues in the area of domestic and family law can be complicated. Barrett McNagny's Family Law Group provides clients with over a decade of experience approaching matters practically and compassionately.
Marital separation or divorce is a difficult time for a family. We work with clients by using our knowledge and experience to help guide them through the difficult transition. We have worked with clients in high net worth marital disputes, unmarried persons, and domestic partners. Our approach combines our attorney's business background and educational experience to provide practical and no-nonsense advice to clients.
Adoptions and Paternity
We have handled various types of adoptions, including private adoptions, agency adoptions, foster adoptions, adoptions involving the Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children, and the finalization of international adoptions. Our knowledge includes working through paternity questions in matters involving custody, visitation, and support.
Custody and Child Support
Custody and child support are often the most difficult, emotional, and complex aspects of a divorce. We work diligently to protect the parental rights and the best interest of the child or children involved.
Guardian Ad Litem
During a divorce, paternity proceeding, grandparent visitation matter, juvenile delinquency or guardianship matter, a court may appoint a Guardian Ad Litem (GAL) to represent and protect the best interests of a child or an incapacitated person, and provide the individual with services requested by the court, including – researching, examining, advocating, facilitating, and monitoring the child(ren)’s or incapacitated person’s situation on its own motion or a party to the case (or their attorney) may request that the court appoint a GAL.
Sadie Dillon-Baatz serves as a Guardian Ad Litem and has completed training that included specialized instruction and education on a variety of topics such as conducting home visits, investigating a child’s or an incapacitated individual’s situation, interviewing family members and service providers, and making reports with recommendations to the Court. This training allows her to represent the best interests of children and incapacitated individuals who are unable to represent themselves.
